“Often times, when someone is ready to seek treatment for their addiction they are overwhelmed and do not know where to go to get the help they need,” said Nina Rains with Community Action Commission of Fayette County. “With the Faith in Recovery tab we hope to bridge that gap.”

“If you or someone you know is ready to take the first step towards recovery, contact Pathways to Recovery,” explained Rains.
