Martinsburg Journal-News – It seems that just about everyone has been impacted by someone battling substance abuse or addiction. Although treatment options exist, limited resources make access challenging, and few treatment facilities seem to assert continued success. Read the full article.
However, it appears that West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle has been fortunate in welcoming the non-profit organization, Semper Liberi (SL), which aims to empower those seeking treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) to live with freedom and purpose.
Semper Li actively collaborates with the Mountaineer Recovery Center (MRC) and the organization’s patients who are being discharged from their residential substance abuse treatment program. The organization’s efforts include focusing on vocational rehabilitation, stable and suitable housing, and transportation to and from work, medical appointments, or other appointments critical to managing early recovery such as court appearances or trips to the DMV or local Social Security Office. Without the resources and continuum of care that Semper Li and MRC offer, the number of those suffering from addiction will only continue to rise and the state of West Virginia will continue to incur the economic burden of his epidemic.
