The United States East Coast was hit by a hurricane named “Sandy” late in October. Millions of people were impacted by this devastating natural disaster. The storm killed over 100 people and left thousands of people with destroyed homes and businesses and millions without power.  This was the biggest storm to hit the US in years.

With such large amount of businesses and homes still without power, it’s no wonder the unemployment rate has gone up and many businesses are left with no choice but to remain closed until power is restored. With several mental health and addiction treatment centers being located on the East Coast, you can only imagine how many are still not up and operational – leaving their client’s without treatment.

Many people already in treatment or recovery are now dealing with trauma and stress from the effects of Sandy and they are left with nowhere to turn for help. The beds in detox and treatment centers that do have power are now full of Sandy victims and unavailable to those who are in need of detox or chemical dependency treatments.

If you are need of help and have a hard time finding a local treatment center, please call Family First Intervention.
