As the weather gets colder and the days get darker, many addicts find themselves retreating into their addiction more than before.
At AMIRF, we generally see an increase in those seeking help and unfortunately overdoses during the holiday season.
This year is no exception.
Over the past 30 days, AMIRF has put Eight people into long-term treatment programs and 12 into sober homes.
We are thrilled that we have been able to reach so many people, however, putting people into treatment is not cheap.
Scholarship for one month of treatment = $1,400 dollars
Train ticket to treatment center = $300 dollars
= $1,700 dollars
Currently, 80 percent of AMIRF’s funds are from Tim Ryan’s motivational speaking events and it is becoming more and more difficult to provide for those who need our help.
This Tuesday is Giving Tuesday, so please consider donating to AMIRF. If it is not your loved one who needs help, it is someone else’s. Please consider giving someone’s child or parent the gift of recovery this holiday season.
