“Tis the Season” has an entirely different meaning for victims/survivors of drunk-driving crashes.
Traditionally a time of celebration, the holidays may be exceptionally hard for families who have endured the devastating effect of a drunk-driving crash. Their coping skills may be tested and the need for additional support is crucial.
During times of crisis such as a drunk-driving crash, individuals often do not know where to turn for additional support and guidance. Mothers Against Drunk Driving Long Island (MADD LI) has many services available.
