To educate the public about the disease of addiction, the consequences of untreated addiction and the process of recovery.
Chasenomore works to reduce or prevent the harms of alcohol and narcotic drug use through education intervention and advocacy.
In my past I struggled with an addiction to the powerful painkiller “Hydrocodone -Lortab-Lorcet”. I have been clean for 7 years.
My experience give me a unique perspective on the matter.
When addiction becomes your life it takes the place of everything ! I believe that no matter what you have been through, there is ALWAYS HOPE for recovery.
As the general public learns the facts, it is my HOPE that stigma will be reduced, more people will seek treatment, and our society will benefit from an overall reduction in substance use and misuse.
I want to give that hope of acceptance and understanding to those suffering with addiction and to the people who love them.
Here I call to mind the Yiddish saying “If you save one life, you save the entire world.
