We were at the "Mobilize Recovery Across Georgia" Rally at The AMP here in Carrollton. It was such an honor to be able to talk to various organizations in the community, build better relations with them and switch information to help better service the community.
We here at Carrollton Rainbow take addiction and substance abuse issues very seriously, and we know that the LGBTQ+ Community is especially impacted by it due to numerous factors that each of us are subjected to that could potentially cause one to fall into addiction. That is why we have several resources for addiction, mental health, and substance abuse issues on our website of CarrolltonRainbow.com
We want to help in any way we can to turn the tides of addiction and substance abuse, and participating with this is moving us in the right direction. If you are someone who is struggling with Mental Health or Substance Abuse, please, we encourage you to use the resources we have available.
