Challenge

In 2020, more than 93,000 people died of a drug overdose, which is 30% more than in 2019. South Carolina is one of ten states that is predicted to have seen at least a 40% rise in overdose deaths. 21 million Americans have a substance use disorder and sadly only 10% of them receive treatment. Aside from the stigma surrounding substance use disorders, which causes many people to shy away from seeking help, the cost of treatment hinders those in our community from getting the help that they need.

Solution

This project will take one of the largest barriers of individuals seeking treatment away. Imagine you are at that key point in your addiction where you decide to get help, but the only thing preventing you to do it is the cost. An individual should never have to decide between their addiction or treatment. By providing this life-saving treatment, we can get those in need of our help on the road to recovery and continue to break the stigma surrounding this disease.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide treatment and care for individuals struggling with substance use, allowing them to be more self-sufficient and employable individuals without the stress of worrying about how to fund treatment. Ultimately, this program will save lives!
