Addiction Never Sleeps –
April 20, 2020 – This time of isolation can be a difficult hill to climb for people either battling a substance use disorder or in recovery and are cut off from their social circles.
Breanna Bouley is the Director of Addiction Services at CentraCare. She says they’ve seen a growing demand for their services since the pandemic began. She says with the growing amount of stress the virus brings, they’ve made a point to check in with clients on a daily basis and provide coping measures to help patients from relapsing. Bouley says while the face-to-face interaction is limited, there are many free online options. The apps and online meetings can be found anywhere. They don’t require a meeting with us first to access them.
