“After giving birth to twins…”

“After giving birth to twins who suffered from NAS (Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome), I was put in a situation where inpatient treatment was the only option if I wanted to keep my kids. I was willing to do anything at that point. I completed a 28 day program that saved my life and has allowed me to stay in my kids’ lives. I wish treatment had been an option before the babies were born.”

“I feel like a whole new person…”

“I delivered my now one year old son while taking suboxone that was not prescribed to me. I was charged with simple assault and offered treatment with Families Free! For me it was a blessing in disguise (kinda) I have now been off suboxone for several months now! I don’t think I could have done it without all the support from the awesome staff at Families Free! Treatment truly works if you really want it! I feel like a whole new person after being clean six months!!”
