THE DISEASE OF ADDICTION
There were over 100,000 overdose related deaths in 2021, in the US alone!! In honor of those who are trying so hard to stay in active recovery, and in memory of all our loved ones for whom it is too late, TheCharityChallenge.net is raising money for a nonprofit organization who is committed to challenging the revolving door system of recovery in the U.S. and who will offer a very different and holistic alternative to treatment that will END the current cycle of relapse and recidivism. TheCharityChallenge.net's recipient organization: TriCircle was established in CT, and is dedicated to creating real, long-term solutions. In its full implementation, it will offer a residential, comprehensive, individualized, uninterrupted continuum of care with treatment options for participants with co-occurring mental health issues!
