FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Cory McKeone's journey to recovery is in the early stages as he's only been at the Inspiration House two months.
"It's hard being away not being able to see family and stuff like that. We're able to communicate through Skype, texting, and calling stuff like that. We have a really good support system here," McKeone said.
One of the key triggers for someone to fall into addiction is isolation.
He said if he didn't have these things- it would be a lot harder, but the Inspiration House is providing those resources for prevention.
"We're still moving forward with our in house recovery meetings. That helps to boost the morale of the home. We bought some games. The guys have been more diligent about communicating with each other," Inspiration House Director Tei Ferguson said.
For others telehealth has become a driving force to keep people on track- and without it, some are falling through the cracks.
"We're doing everything in that state to make sure people do not miss any of those needed appointments if at all possible for them to do it online. However, I have some amazing friends that are clinical social workers and their caseload has dropped because they do private practice. If people don't have access to high-speed internet then it's hard for them to do that," MaryClare Akers of Drug and Alcohol Consortium said.
Please go to the Allen County Drug & Alcohol Consortium’s website for a list of resources, which will continue to get updated as more information is collected.
