Mental Health Initiative Resources for Churches

If You're Seeking Help

Substance Abuse and Addiction

Help.org is a group of medical professionals and based on conversations they have had with addiction experts across the US, the vast majority of people who need treatment for substance abuse disorders do not seek it. Though there are many barriers that discourage people from getting the help they need, cost is a significant factor. So Help.org created a guide that provides comprehensive information on topics like, available care options, financial support, and free resources that are available in Iowa.
