At Rideauwood I discovered that there really is strength in numbers.
I kept wondering if I had a problem WITH ALCOHOL OR DRUGS.
At Rideauwood I was able to stop asking questions and find answers.
My son was gambling a lot and my relationship with him was getting worse.
At Rideauwood I learned that my own journey was as important as his.
Since the pandemic, more people need counselling. We work with other organizations to help you access the support you need when you need it.
“Worry. I lived with it 24/7. I woke up many nights in a cold sweat wondering where my daughter was.”
“I’m a single mom and my son’s all the family I’ve got. Our relationship was great when he was little but as he got to be a teenager he got in with a group of friends and started using.”
