Help for Those Who Are Hurting
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, an estimated 21 million Americans — more than the number of people who have all cancers combined — suffer from a substance use disorder involving alcohol or drugs. Only 4 million received treatment, or about 19% of those who needed it.
There is a large disparity between the number of individuals in need of trauma and addiction treatment and the number that receive it. One common barrier to treatment is a lack of funding, our scholarship aid initiative is dedicated to helping patients get the care they need to support recovery.
