Our goal is to help addicts recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body.
Our mission is to minimize the financial barrier between loved ones and treatment.
Drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will. Drugs change the brain in ways that make quitting hard, even for those who want to quit. Fortunately, researchers know more than ever about how drugs affect the brain and have found treatments that can help people recover from drug addiction and lead productive lives.
We provide funding for insured or uninsured persons up to the negotiated rates.
These funds go towards copays for treatment stays or for detox.
We provide clothing and toiletries to people who are in need when available.
Getting sober offers the possibility of a new beginning and a second chance, but it is not simple. There is no cure for addiction/alcoholism; it is defined in the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) as a chronic progressive brain disease. Therefore, constructing a life after addiction – then learning how to navigate that life – can be very intimidating for people new to recovery. It requires a person to yield changes, set goals, and make a commitment.
Recovery means that someone is not using any mind-altering substances and is in remission from active addiction/alcoholism. One is not actively suffering from the condition as long as they are in recovery. However, it may still affect someone in a variety of ways.
Recovery is a dynamic process. But every moment of it is worthwhile. It is the phase where the addict learns how to function “normally,” including but not limited to: eating, sleeping, working, socializing, and learning how to cope with their emotions without being under the influence.
Take the first step toward receiving assistance if you or a loved one is battling addiction. The sooner you begin your road to recovery, the better.
