The Recovery Foundation to provide financial assistance during COVID-19 crisis
The COVID-19 crisis has impacted individuals and organizations around the world. In Dane County, we are just now seeing the effects of job loss, health insurance loss and social isolation. While these negative forces weigh heavily on us all, the impact is even more significant for individuals struggling with the disease of addiction, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression. More than ever, they need continued support and treatment and we remain true in our commitment to help.
Recovery Foundation is providing financial support to individuals in need to help them stay connected to their recovery support system during the unprecedented crisis that has strained every social service. This financial assistance may contribute to co-payments during the COVID-19 crisis, provide some individual or group counseling sessions during a job furlough, loss or continue services until BadgerCare coverage can be established.
How you can help
Unfortunately, we cannot host our Voices for Recovery Luncheon and Fundraiser in 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis. The event has grown over the past 10 years to be more than a fundraiser – truly becoming a celebration of recovery and the recovery community. At this point in the year, we would be energetically in full-planning mode now for the September event; however, we know our efforts and energy need to be focused on helping others that are struggling during this unprecedented challenge. We look forward to resuming our event next year. Please help us continue our mission during the turbulent times we are all experiencing. If you would like to help, please consider making a donation to continue recovery support for someone in need. A donation link is below and you can also call to request a donation envelope or to donate by phone at 608.733.6600.
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.
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 high cost of treatment.
The Recovery Foundation is financially committed to helping these people find their opportunity through recovery.
