The HOPE for Franklin County Coalition is providing a new support group meeting that we want you to know about. The Group is called "Start Talking", and will begin on January 10, at the First Baptist Church in St. Clair from 11am-noon.
This group meeting is specifically for adolescents ages 13-18 who are beginning to see the negative impact of alcohol or other drugs in their life. We know there are young people who are struggling with accepting they may have a problem, or that drug use by someone in their immediate circle is causing a problem for them, too. Taking the first step -- to Start Talking -- is often the hardest one.
