What Does Rage Against Addiction Do?

From treatment resources and sober living to family services and grief support, Rage Against Addiction strives to provide programs that follow the addict and the family through the recovery process.

HALO (How to Live Without Our Addicted Loved One)

An online grief support group specifically for those that lost loved ones to substance abuse. This is a safe and private supportive environment. Please request to join here.

Rage Club

Designed for children who are impacted by substance abuse disorder. In partnership with Ashley Addiction’s Family Wellness Program, this group meets several times a year; meetings include counselor-led discussions and fun activities.
