Heroin Addiction Services

Our Purpose
Free Heroin's Hold is a Minnesota based non-profit. Our purpose is to raise awareness and expose the truths about how serious heroin and prescription pill addiction has become. We offer guidance and resources to those families with a young loved one fighting the terrible stronghold of heroin and prescription pill addiction. Together, we will help find the proper treatment program and overcome all obstacles.
Treatment
Ultimately, our goal is to open up treatment centers that will incorporate and improve upon best practices to win against the battle of opiate addiction. Our program will include healthful daily activities to improve wellness, instill a sense of personal accomplishment, to build self confidence, and to empower.
Support Groups
Our support group is for parents, users, people in recovery or anyone (brothers, sisters, friends...) that have been touched by or have lost a loved one due to addictive behavior. This includes all addictive drugs, not just heroin.
