Dear Friends and Neighbors,  

On Tuesday we celebrated the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) being signed into law. The ADA "prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life…," including anyone struggling with a substance use disorder. 

Addiction to a substance is a disease, impairing brain and neurological functions.  From my own personal experience, the journey to recovery is a long, hard-fought battle – and is only easier when we are inclusive of those with a disability. 

As we celebrate the anniversary of this momentous Act – let us know acknowledge, listen, be aware, and commit to helping others.
