BOSTON (CBS) – Since its inception ten years ago, a Raynham group called ‘Learn to Cope’ has grown statewide, from one chapter to twelve. In part four of her week long series, “Heroin: from Prescription to Addiction” WBZ’s Mary Blake looks at the reasons behind “Learn to Cope’s” expansion.
“It’s very difficult to walk through those doors. As a parent doing it myself, that was my final admission, acceptance of I had a addict in my family.” Sharon Mathews is a facilitator with the ‘Learn to Cope’ Yarmouth Chapter. Learn to Cope is a peer led support group created by parents, for parents, whose families struggle with addiction.
