We are beginning to settle in nicely to our new home in Nicholson, Ga! We have been organizing, updating and renovating to make the property best suite our needs. We are still in need of a refrigerator to increase our ability to utilize the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. We are privileged to be able to participate with them as an agency and fill our pantry full each week with their help! If you or someone you know has a new or used refrigerator they would be willing to donate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 706-206-2838. We have been getting more calls for admission than ever before! God is showing out with all He has planned for us at this new location and we are so excited to be able to share this journey with you!
Graduation Time (again)!
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Survey on Drug Use and Health, “23.5 million persons aged 12 or older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol abuse problem . Of these, only 2.6 million—11.2 percent of those who needed treatment— received it.” (NIDA. Treatment Statistics. National Institute on Drug Abuse website. https://www.drugabuse.gov/ publications/drugfacts/treatment-statistics. March 1, 2011. Accessed August 9, 2017. ) With such a small percentage of those who need treatment receiving it at all, we are beyond thrilled to announce we have four residents graduating September 2nd! Graduations are the reason we do what we do! Nothing is better than seeing the smiles and joy of family members, friends and the residents themselves as they are celebrated for their accomplishments! On average, a graduation for one resident adds up to close to $300.00, so you can only imagine the cost of doing four at once! We don’t cut any corners when it comes to celebrating our graduates and we invite you to help us make this graduation the very best it can be! As always, you can donate through our website by scrolling over “How to Help” then “Donate Now” to be taken directly to our PayPal website. You can also donate by mail at P.O Box 48102 Athens, Ga 30604. Don’t forget to “like” and follow us on Facebook! Keep an eye out for an upcoming post to again show our love to our graduates! “Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go.
