If you or a colleague need help because you suspect drug

abuse or addiction, please contact Jack or Gregg ASAP.


YOU ARE NOT ALONE!


Confidential Help!


We have been where you are. Yes it's frightening. No, the

situation is NOT hopeless, unless you choose to do nothing.

It IS possible to recover and return to practice. More importantly,

it is possible to live a full life with your family and friends. But

you will need help along the way.


You CANNOT do this alone!
