Addicted to Change's mission is to provide services, resources, harm reduction, and eventually a shelter for people who use drugs. Our goal is to reduce the number of HIV/HCV cases, reduce the number of relapses, and ultimately reduce the number of deaths caused by the cycle of addiction.
Addicted to Change is focused on people who use drugs and specifically those who are in communities outside of cities with little to no access to services that would help prevent the continuation of the cycle of addiction or provide any relief to underserved individuals who use drugs. We are relatively new, but what we lack in experience we make up for in drive.
We have three main goals:
1. Purchase a free nolaxone/narcan vending machine and set it up in a place with high opioid addiction rates to combat the opioid crisis.
2. Open a mobile unit to provide harm reduction services, HIV/HCV testing, and other various resources to communities that are unable to access the same available resources that are in urban areas.
3. A tiny house community of people who are coming out of rehabilitation programs. We will provide different resources depending on that individuals need. While at our facility there will be job fairs, community clean up days, and other events to help our beneficiaries give back to the community, while also giving them ways to get back to stability. Eventually they will have the option of purchasing the tiny house or using the rental history that they've occurred to help find their own home.
With your help we can provide these services to people all across Georgia and helping people is always a good thing.
