Since the first meeting almost two years ago, they have formed friendships, supported one another, and used their collective voices to advocate for prevention programs and access to treatment for anyone who needs it. They also work to help those entering recovery by raising funds to support people who are trying to
put their lives back together. Expenses such as transportation to treatment, fees to enter sober living homes (one month’s rent) and numerous other hurdles can block a path to successful recovery.
Many people with SUD have “burned their bridges” with family and friends, and find themselves with no money and no place to live after having received a short period of treatment. Their goal is to prevent relapses by helping with these expenses, while providing family support to help rebuild lives.
Feel free to find them on facebook at Facebook/Road to Hope Woodbridge.
