Bringing awareness to the drug and mental health epidemic by advocating for recovery and re-integration to society to those affected by this crisis while providing the needed resources for them to achieve the specific goals.
We are Live Be Free Drug Free (LBFDF), a startup nonprofit organization based out of Los Angeles, California. LBFDF was established by Celeste Ventura in 2017 with the simple idea of creating bands to bring awareness to the drug and mental health epidemic. In February 2020 LBFDF became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Celeste is a big advocate for the recovering community as well as the community of mental health as she was once married to someone who battled addiction and suffered mental health issues.
Before loosing her husband, Celeste vowed to bring awareness to the drug and mental health epidemic to remove the taint and stigma behind such subjects to help create programs that would benefit anyone between the ages of 13 and up who are suffering from drug addiction and any mental health condition by aiding them to enter rehab centers and providing services for mental healthcare. Celeste is also eager to create jobs to help reintegrate the rehabilitated back into society and eventually, open hospitals, detox centers, rehabilitation centers and mental institutions.
While we are geared towards great strides, Live Be Free Drug Free has a lot to accomplish. This is why we are seeking volunteers with the same passion as ours to join our organization. With your help we can help change the lives of people who can’t afford treatment and provide the help that is desperately needed which is part of fulfilling our goals.
