Arise Addiction Recovery reaches out to local schools

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Arise Addiction Recovery Director Paul Trovarello knows that for kids, serious addiction can begin in innocent ways.

“With me it just started as something to do, having fun. I didn’t know I was a drug addict until I needed to take Percocet so I wasn’t sick,” said Trovarello. “Fun and addiction can really go hand in hand for a kid.”

To help Washington County youth avoid addiction, Arise Addiction Recovery is making presentations in eight area schools.
