Local woman creates support group for moms of addicts

The opioid crisis continues to hit communities across the country, including here in Fort Wayne.

That’s why Jennifer Hope created The Mom of an Addict Inc.

It’s a local non-profit that supports parents who have a child struggling with addiction.

Jennifer’s son Jake Burgess, became addicted to drugs in high school and his life was spiraling out of control.

With the support of his family and by attending a recovery center in West Virginia, Burgess was able to get clean. He’s now celebrating 2 years in recovery.

Hope says no one should have to go through this struggle by themselves.

The first support group meeting will be held Tuesday, June 18th at 6:30 PM at The Chapel.

That’s located on 2505 W. Hamilton Rd. S Fort Wayne, IN 46814.
