Drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment facility, Turning Point of Tampa, is witnessing an increase in young clients seeking help to overcome addiction. Logan Chamberlin, a licensed mental health counselor and former client at the facility, said that there has been a 20% rise in clients aged 18 to 30.
Logan attributes this increase to the growing opioid epidemic and the availability of more powerful substances like fentanyl. He also highlighted that the treatment helped him and others to overcome addiction and build a new life and wants others to know that help is available.
