Over 100 people die daily from a drug overdose. Over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 have some type of substance abuse addiction (other than tobacco).
In Wisconsin, there were 883 opioid related overdose deaths in 2017; a 7% increase over 2016... a 35% jump from 2015.
The stigma and the face of addiction has changed dramatically over the years. Today, it's our neighbors and coworkers. It's our siblings, friends, spouses, parents and children...
Recovery is an opportunity for the amazing people who are dedicated to getting their lives back. It's the process of change, through which people can improve their health and wellbeing and strive to once again live a life to their fullest potential. People with severe and chronic substance use disorders can, with effective treatment, overcome their illness and regain control of their lives. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to afford the cost of treatment. The Recovery Foundation is committed to helping these people find their opportunity through recovery.
The Recovery Foundation, Inc., founded in 2009, is a non-profit organization that supports individuals in Dane County through their substance abuse recovery by providing them with Treatment Scholarships, to help aid in the cost. The Scholarship Recipients are dedicated to their recovery, and want more than anything to reclaim the life they were meant to, and want to live.
In 2017, Recovery Foundation was able to help 28 people with the cost of their treatment. 2018 is shaping up to be the most successful year to date, with an expected 40+ people to receive Treatment Scholarships.
The Recovery Foundation is additionally focused on raising community awareness on the viability and sustainability of long term recovery from substance use disorders. Using a passionate, volunteer board and through the generosity of many individual and corporate sponsors, Recovery Foundation has made an impact on many lives in Dane County.
The Recovery Foundation, along with the generosity of several donors and sponsors, is providing the opportunity to people who desperately want to recover from the crippling disease of addiction.
