"Prevention, education, and treatment are necessary if we are to manifest positive changes"
The mission of Live4RJ is to prevent drug abuse, educate and create change through community-based solutions meant to inspire, empower and assist all adolescents, young adults and veterans suffering from addiction live to their potential, leading a full healthy life.
We will be champions of our community reaching and empowering all adolescents and young adults with an emphasis on those struggling with addiction, bridging the gap between those who are falling through the cracks and not reached by typical non-profit groups.
THE HARD TRUTH
WE HAVE A 9/11 SCALE LOSS OF LIFE EVERY WEEK FROM DRUG OVERDOSE
PA IS RANKED THE 4TH HIGHEST STATE WITH OPIOID USE AND DRUG OVERDOSES.
IN 2016, MORE LIVES WERE LOST TO OVERDOSE THAN THE VIETNAM, AFGHANISTAN, AND IRAQ WARS COMBINED!
Prevention, education, and treatment are necessary if we are to manifest positive changes in the community and ensure success in our youth that will allow them to become employable, productive members of society.
We need to reform laws and policies that empower and inspire those to make better choices. Identify potential risk factors and foster responsibility to learn life skills which are essential to succeed in life.
