Mosaic’s new facility offers more than addiction treatment
Kelly Damon was addicted to heroin for four years before she sought help; but after completing a year-long treatment program, she was given a certificate and a 30-day supply of medication before finding herself back on the street and without support. Damon says she spend six more months feeling depressed and isolated until she found the nonprofit Mosaic Community Services, which offers comprehensive treatment to people dealing with mental illness and addiction. A decade later, Damon, 51, says she's clean and sober, hasn't considered suicide for six years, and is still using the services Mosaic provides. Damon was on hand Friday to help celebrate the opening of Mosaic's new, $4 million integrated health care facility at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building on North Charles Street.
