Did you know...Our town offers two support groups for families struggling with addiction and recovery. Community of HOPE (Healing Ourselves, Preserving Each Other) meets on Mondays at 7:00pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 262 Chestnut St, Franklin and Healing Hearts meets on Thursdays at 7:00pm at the Franklin YMCA, 45 Forge Hill Rd, Franklin. Both groups preserve anonymity and create a safe place for people and families in crisis.
