HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital in Shelbyville has a program designed to help addicts to take the first step on the road to recovery.
Caroline Reynolds is the Service Coordinator for the New Vision Service at HSHS. She says many times the first person they hear from is a loved one trying to help an addict.
Reynolds says they help with the detox to get addicts ready for the hardest step in the process, going to rehab.
Reynolds urges parents and grandparents to keep track of their medications so that they do not fall into the hands of the child or grandchild.
Reynolds appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
