  • Develop tools (including books, power point presentations, and booklets) that can be added as an
    adjunct to any recovery program. These tools will help renew the body, mind, and spirit, support
    the recovery process, and allow the body to repair from the abuse of addictions.

  • Educate the general public, individuals and professionals by providing scientific information on
    addiction in a clear manner.

  • Provide support for individuals facing addiction and their family members, and to help aid
    professionals in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of addictions.

  • Help overcome the existing ignorance regarding addictions by educating the public on addictions
    and the recovery process.

  • Empower professionals, their patients/clients and their families to understand and help in
    prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of alcohol, drugs, and other addictions.
