Overcoming addiction…we can help!

By October 16, 2023Blog

The decision to stop using the drugs that inhabitant one’s body and take control over one’s
brain is a hard decision to make. We here at, A Betor Way, urge you to look at the resources our
community offers. While we know that it is a personal journey when overcoming the grip of
drug-abuse we must also extend our hand in providing resources to keep you motivated on
your path to living healthily.

meetings every day at their location at 8am, both virtually and in person.
The Commons at 258 North Merton Street hold in-person meetings every day, Monday –
Saturday at 12pm and Sunday at 2pm .
Hope Presbyterian Church at 8500 Walnut Grove Road, at varying times, Tuesday at 12pm and
7:30pm, Thursday at 12pm and 7:30pm, and Sunday at 6:30pm.
