Franklihomelessn’s General Outpatient Program (GOP) is designed to serve chemically dependent individuals who want to achieve sobriety and learn how to deal with problems created by addiction on an outpatient basis.

 

There are six basic questions one should ask themselves:

  • Do you ever use alcohol or drugs to relax, feel better about yourself, or fit in?
  • Do you ever use alcohol or drugs while you are by yourself or alone?
  • Do you ever forget things you did while using alcohol or drugs?
  • Have you gotten into trouble while you were using alcohol or drugs?
  • Have you ever ridden in a car driven by someone (including yourself) who was high or using alcohol or drugs?
  • Does your family or friends ever tell you that you?

Answering yes to two (2) or more of these questions indicates a potentially significant problem.Lives shattered by drugs and alcohol can be restored once the addicted person makes a sincere decision to become sober.
