RISE ABOVE is dedicated to providing the Merrimack Valley with information and resources to help those struggling with addiction and mental illness - particularly our young people. NO ONE is immune to the destruction and pain that come with addiction and mental illness, but EVERYONE is part of the healing. It is time we come together as a community and rise above. Rise above the shame, pressure, heartache, sadness, self-blame and doubt, gossip, silence, and stereotypes.

 

Here, you will find warning signs, tips for addressing concerns, an ever expanding list of resources for treatment, general facts and information, and ways to help on a grander scale.
