10% of Oregonians suffer from the disease of addiction but only 1% have acces to treatment. As a result 6-7 people die each day in Oregon from alcohol or drugs.
Oregon has the third highest addiction rate in the country and ranks 50th in access to care. LGBTQ Oregonians are 3 times more likely to suffer from the disease of addiction, there are no prevention programs targeting LGBTQ people, no residential treatment programs specifically meeting the needs ofthe queer community and there virtually no post-treatment support programs for our community. Oregon Recovers is changing that and needs everyone's support.
I am grateful everyday for another day of recovery. I want everyone inflicted with the disease of addiction to have what I have. Thats why I co-founded Oregon Recovers and thats why I'm walking in the Walk for Recovery. I'll hope you'll join my team or make a contribution and be part of the recovery revolution sweeping acorss the country.
