There is Hope for Recovery.
Mental health and substance use disorders can be treated, allowing individuals to lead fulfilling lives in recovery. Unfortunately, there are millions of people who lack access to the necessary treatment that could help them overcome these challenges. Although these disorders are treatable, they often go untreated, resulting in unnecessary suffering for our loved ones – parents, children, friends, and neighbors.
The problem lies not in the lack of effective treatment options but rather a combination of factors. Many individuals remain unaware of substance use disorders and how they affect people’s lives while a significant percentage of those who require or desire treatment are unable to receive it. The Surgeon General’s report titled “Facing Addiction in America” provides eye-opening statistics: over 20 million people suffer from substance use disorders claim seventy-eight lives every day; yet only one out of ten individuals seeking assistance actually obtain it.
Our organization was established with the purpose of bridging this gap between demand for help and available solutions. Professional treatment constitutes the most effective pathway towards overcoming mental health and substance use disorders. Moreover, education serves as a vital tool for mobilizing communities to join forces in developing comprehensive strategies to address our current crisis.
As a non-profit organization, we strive to secure funding that allows individuals in need to access proper treatment for their recovery from mental health and substance use disorders. We organize community events designed to educate the public about these issues – how they can be prevented, recognized, or addressed effectively. Additionally, we sponsor projects aimed at initiating conversations surrounding mental health and substance use disorders with an honest and compassionate approach. By challenging societal stigmas associated with drug and alcohol use through these initiatives we can focus on practical solutions instead shaming those affected.
Our organization was formed due to the devastating impact that mental health and substance use disorders have had on countless members of our families and communities. With sufficient funding and support, we can work together to ensure that everyone in need has the opportunity to receive help for their recovery.
