Acknowledging the need for allyship for those who are experiencing addiction is essential. If you know someone who is experiencing addiction, you can make a difference just by being there, listening and being present. Support healing and recovery through empathy and understanding but, most importantly, reach out and ask them how you can help. Addiction thrives on isolation and shame and declaring yourself to be an ally can be a great way to reach out.
