Mission: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life
"When seeing how the drug epidemic was affecting our children. It was my mission to try and prevent another child from dying. Not everyone responds to the same path of recovery. Change Your Thinking Change Your life Foundation is a nonprofit foundation that will offer several paths, with one on one peer sessions, along with a group type atmosphere to fill the individual’s needs. A network of people in long term recovery helping other people achieve their long term recovery. Based on my experience, most often when a person comes out of some sort of treatment for addiction, they go back to the same people, places and habits. When this happens they sometimes end up relapsing. With the help of donations, public aid, and volunteers this foundations goal is to finance the necessary treatment that is not covered by insurance or in situations where there is no insurance. We want to be able to finance medical needs such as Suboxone, and provide housing needed for individuals when treatment is complete. We will also have a family support group to help aid in the family structure. Our job here is to inform the community about how important it is educate about drug and alcohol abuse and over time, hope that this will prevent future addictions. We would also like to provide literature to educate a person about their own addictions. To offer individual programs, fellowships and recovery coaching for support, and to try and re-train their thinking process to a more positive outlook on their recovery. To provide the training needed to further their education and possible job placement. To create in them a new sense of self-worth and love in order to re-enter society with confidence. As Fredrick Douglass once said "It is easier to build strong children than repair broken men"
