Recovery lasts a lifetime: Jared

Jared Lafreniere tempted fate for 6 years as an active heroin addict, now he's sober and trying to help others get to a better life.

Jared is involved with NH Heroin Anonymous (HA), a group that's growing quickly across the state.

NH HA isn't as strict about anonymity as Alcoholics Anonymous, members are welcome to share their stories. Jared says that is because too many people are dying of overdoses and word needs to spread quickly.

HA is offered in 7 cities and towns.

The group has also established it's own 24 hour hotline. The person on the other end of the line are volunteers. The volunteer will often meet with a person to encourage them toward treatment and often give rides. To reach

NH HA call 8667863761
