Safe Communities Madison-Dane County

Parent Addiction Network


This site is for parents, families, and friends who have a loved one affected by drug addiction. While Madison and Dane County are rich in resources and services, it is often difficult to know who to turn to, what to ask, and how to navigate the issues and systems associated with drug use disorders. Use this site to find answers to your questions and remember...You are not alone!!

''I didn't know what to do or where to turn.  I couldn't talk to my family or friends. There is a stigma with addiction that makes it so difficult."  (Madison Parent)

"I learned addicts are not people on the street, but they are kids from your school, friends, neighbors and, surprisingly, parents of those kids." (Madison Parent)
