About Us

Founded by Bohdan Lopatnyuk and other friends, Touched by Addiction aims to help people from across Canada with proven resources to break the chains of addiction.

Our vision is to provide a 24/7 national hotline with resources and referral information for faith-based and other programs that we personally recommend. This service is free-of-charge and is open to grandparents, parents and those who are struggling with addictions.
