We are building out our Adopt an Addict program and have been very successful thus far.
After losing my brother to an accidental heroin overdose in April 2016, I was hurt, angry, depressed, and felt lost. For weeks I asked "why" "what could I have done different"? These questions kept me up every single night. I've come to accept that I could not save my brother, but that doesn't mean I can't try and help fight for others in his honor and memory I hope I make him proud each and everyday by honoring him through my work. I will continue to support those who seek help for addiction, I will educate the ignorant with the hope of removing the stigma of heroin addiction.

mission & vision
Everyone deserves to live a happy and healthy life, no one is ever worth giving up on. We will fight with the hope that one day we won't have to against this epidemic.
April 2016 - After Rachel and Jennifer lost their brother Joshua and Robin her son, the women were determined to fight the growing heroin epidemic in our country. Rachel and Robin began donating their time giving rides to individuals to their treatment facilities.
May 2016 - Rachel and Robin met two incredible men who inspired them and broke their hearts at the same time upon learning of their stories. These two men had nothing, no support, no clothes other than the ones on their backs. But what they did have was determination to complete their treatment and stay clean.
May 2016 - Adopt an Addict was officially founded and sent our first two care packages out to the men who inspired us to start this organization. We hope to help many others until this battle is won.
June 2016 - We sent out another care package to a man in Pennsylvania consisting of shoes, clothing, and cards.
July 2016 - Adopt an Addict is working in conjunction with other national addiction awareness and support groups to further our message and our reach to help as many individuals as we can. We are working on some new and exciting projects that we will be sharing in the coming week!
Because we are a non-profit, we rely on volunteers to help us do what we do. We are always in need of additional help. Please e-mail us for more information.
