Arise Addiction Recovery Director Paul Trovarello knows that for kids, serious addiction can begin in innocent ways.
“With me it just started as something to do, having fun. I didn’t know I was a drug addict until I needed to take Percocet so I wasn’t sick,” said Trovarello. “Fun and addiction can really go hand in hand for a kid.”
To help Washington County youth avoid addiction, Arise Addiction Recovery is making presentations in eight area schools.
