It’s that time of year again!
I’m running the falmouth road race In honor of all those who lost their lives in active addiction and to help bring awareness to the still sick and suffering addict - There is hope.
Any penny counts!
On Sunday, August 18, 2019, Team Gosnold will be running the Falmouth Road Race to raise money for our unfunded and underfunded programs.
Some run with our team to celebrate their own recovery or the recovery of a loved one, some run to memorialize a loved one lost to addiction. Everyone has their own reasons for running, but everyone on Team Gosnold runs to help educate the community and reduce the stigma of addiction and mental illness.
Some of our unfunded and underfunded programs are described below:
The Gosnold Alumni program provides support to those who previously participated in Gosnold services. The program nurtures a community of like-minded individuals who are active in their recovery, and show interest in getting involved with service work, volunteer opportunities and recovery-based social events.
Gosnold's Technology Supports such as Expressive Digital Imagery (EDI) which promotes recovery and emotional resilience through imagery created on mobile devices. Photos and images can be altered and enhanced by the individual to express their feelings associated with mental health and substance use orders. Individuals use EDI to share deeply personal aspects of their lives that are difficult to express through words alone.
Gosnold’s Prevention Division aims to reduce substance use among young people, support families affected by addiction, intervene before addiction starts and help build healthy communities.
Gosnold....where the running ends.
