Change Direction website
In honor of Chester Bennington. The goal of the Campaign to Change Direction is to change the culture of mental health in America so that all of those in need receive the care and support they deserve. The Campaign encourages all Americans to pay attention to their emotional well-being – and it reminds us that our emotional well-being is just as important as our physical well-being.

This site provides extensive information on the types, causes, and signs of addiction, as well as the different kinds of recovery options, including withdrawal symptoms. *WARNING* I am not endorsing the recommended treatment centers offered. I don’t know anything about this organization.
