My name is Janet Moore and I have been living around the disease of addiction for over 26 years. Most of those years, I am proud to say, were spent around the recovery stage of addiction. For the last 7 years, I have been living with the active stage of this disease due to my son's addictions. During this time I searched everywhere trying to locate adolescent treatment programs. It was a huge battle locating and learning about the programs available in Massachusetts. It took me more time than I care to recall. The time that it took allowed my son to get deeper into his addiction and to become associated with the negative/bad things that go along with addiction. His addiction became so strong that recovery has been something he has tried to do for us not himself. That type of recovery never works. He paid some heavy consequences for his actions and has spent many a nights out on his own due to the tuff love action that I had to take. Yes, some of those nights were in the dead of winter.
During my research I found it frustrating talking to so many people and organizations in this field and many of them not knowing all that was available. Each person I talked to had a piece of information. It then became my job to take each piece of information and put them all together to complete the puzzle. I became determined not let this happen to another family. I wanted other families to have easy access, in one place, to the information that I have obtained. Please keep in mind that most of this information is for Massachusetts residents. Please also keep in mind that these programs change their structure often so it is always important that you contact the program yourself to determine if it will fit your needs.
Finally, there are programs available through the DSS and DYS in our state. We never had the need to become involved with either program so I do not know all that they have available however, I have listed a couple that I did come across.
