S Shrewsbury, MA is a small town that was part of a significant historical event. Shays’ Rebellion was an armed uprising in Massachusetts carried out by thousands of rebels carried out against the seeming injustices perpetuated by the state. Shrewsbury specifically served as a staging area for the rebellion and encampment for over 400 insurgents.
Shrewsbury, Massachusetts is about 45 minutes from Boston, which makes it susceptible to the influx of drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately, addiction is a force of terror that generally accompanies addiction. Addiction targets people regardless of their background. It has no face.
Every person is at risk for addiction. Given the ubiquity of drugs and alcohol, it’s quite easy for people to access them. Beyond accessibility, life is difficult. People every day struggle to keep their heads above water. Drugs might seem like a good escape.
The most susceptible population are those isolated. People isolated from community and love might venture toward drugs more frequently than those who aren’t. As a part of addiction treatment people are encouraged to connect with others and live in community–not isolation.
The best thing you can do for someone who is suffering from an addiction is to hold an intervention. An intervention gathers loved ones together to help the person struggling realize first that they are loved and second that they are hurting other people. Sometimes people in addiction do not realize that they are hurting other people. They might think that they are just hurting themselves.
Do not lose hope. Your loved one is worth it. Your family is worth it. When your loved one gets help, it will help your family heal as well.
