DULUTH, Minn. – During this time of quarantine, people with addiction issues may have a harder time dealing with self-isolation.

According to the co-founder of Recovery Alliance Duluth, technology has been a good resource with helping with recovery. Face-to-face contact has been replaced with a virtual world where clients are receiving counseling and outreach. Among the topics discussed with patients, including fear, increased financial stress and homeschooling.

“In this community, I can say that I feel like we’re in this together. And so I get the support I need from my people and we pay it forward,” Beth Elstad, co-founder and executive director of Recovery Alliance Duluth.
