SAVING LIVES PROJECT

One life at a time.

MISSION STATEMENT

At The Saving Lives Project, our mission is to provide a safe, secure and monitored environment for those battling substance use that run the risk of compromising their recovery. We support the individuals and help them get back on track with their recovery program.

WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
The opioid epidemic is sweeping the country at an alarming rate, bringing with it a death rate of 192 people per day. The best way to stem this crisis is through a long term recovery process. A key element of this process is community based recovery that provides support while promoting independence. Sober living in a community setting provides independent living with accountability where people working on their recovery can lead their regular lives, but have the support and structure built into their living environment. Sober living environments are one of the most effective ways for long term sobriety.

Saving Lives Project was formed in order to help people who need this element of the recovery process, but have Financial restraints, gain access to this important step in long term recovery. Saving Lives Project has a two-prong goal of providing scholarships to remove the barrier of affordability as a reason not to go to a sober living environment, as well to provide a short term safety net via a Safe House for people who had a setback in the recovery.

OVERDOSE DEATHS

This dramatic number of deaths is in great part due to the unpresented increase of synthetic opioid overdoses, and in particular Fentanyl, which is up to 50 times more potent than Heroin. While the government is trying to address the importation of these illegal and fatal drugs, the immediate issue that needs to be addressed is treatment and support for the addicts. This treatment can be expensive and very few of these programs are funded through health insurance, therefore the burden falls on the individual and their families.

If an addict is lucky enough to enter a treatment program, the real struggles start once they leave and have to reenter the community and their previous life.
