Find numerous resources for addiction help in one place, every month

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A group called There is No Hero in Heroin is organizing monthly meetings at the Tucson Police Miracle Mile substation where addiction agencies and resources can convene in one place. 

Janice Harris with No Hero helped her own son through drug addiction, and she says finding the right place to go for help was difficult. 

"You either have to be in the system or you have to be pretty well-off.  We wanted to find places where people like me, single mom with two kids, could send their kids and get the same treatment," says Harris.

Participating agencies include Salvation Army, CODAC, La Frontera, Gospel Rescue Mission.  Anyone can attend the meetings and talk face-to-face with addiction treatment experts and people personally affected by addiction.

Future meeting dates are March 14, April 8, May 9, and June 13.
