More from "What 518 means to me..."
"Three members of my family spend or have spent considerable time at 518 West Seneca St. We are members of Al-anon, AA, and NA. Our teen-aged son's problems with addiction first brought me to Al-anon meetings at 518. Later, my son and husband both attended meetings at the building for their recovery from drugs and alcohol. Meetings at 518 have made a huge impact on the well-being of our family. When addiction impacts a family, it is often necessary to rebuild social networks from the ground up, as it was for us. I am very grateful to Ithaca Community Recovery for providing a place for that to happen."
