Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Addiction recovery requires an everyday commitment to sober living. Whether you are in your first month of recovery or have just achieved your first decade, Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation has the resources and services to help you maintain your freedom from drug or alcohol addiction.
SUBSTANCE ABUSE ORGANIZATIONS:
National Institute on Drug Abuse - The mission of NIDA is to lead the nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction.
The National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse (NCAPDA) - was established to help reduce the number of deaths and addictions caused by prescription drug abuse, through the implementation of a nationwide awareness campaign, the initiation and support of pertinent legislative action and through partnerships with educational, medical, law enforcement and other appropriate entities.
HERO foundation - Our original mission was and still is to help the families of those who have lost a child to heroin. We plan to achieve this through a series of support programs and other programs that will stop the problem at its source. As our organization has grown and we’ve had the chance to meet more and more families within the community that have been personally affected by heroin and the devastating effects is has on not only the user but their family, friend, and society at large. Heroin abuse is not a private matter that only affects the user. This is a problem that affects society as a whole . We all bear the costs and consequences of heroin use in the form of economic and socioeconomic burdens that extend nationwide. The monetary costs and the raw effort exerted by community involvement prevention, treatment, and support programs through organizations like HERO are far less that what the current way of doing things is costing us.
With the help and support of people like you we are striving to create a movement that will combat the spread of heroin use across America one city at a time. Currently HERO is involved in planning several programs that will prevent heroin use, provide treatment for current users, and support the families affected by this growing epidemic.
