Resources to Respond to Substance Abuse

One of SN’s regular columns, On the Grow, which encourages personal growth, states that “Improvement begins with ‘I’.” But when does it become your responsibility to assist in the growth of others? This topic explored in a particularly complex column written in the August 2017 edition, titled “There’s an Addict on the Team.” In its pages, Freelance Writer Duffy Perkins discusses the often nebulous and incredibly difficult task of getting involved in the trajectory of an addict—particularly when they are a coworker. And though Perkins does detail the different stages of addiction, it is important for our readers to be able to have all of the resources possible to be able to respond to substance abuse by a coworker, friend or family member. Please feel free to use any and all of the resources provided on this page, in addition to the article in School Nutrition.
