Josh Bressette Commit To Save A Life Inc. was created in May of 2014 in loving memory of Joshua Bressette, a 25 year old who lost his life due to his addiction to heroin. Josh Bressette Commit To Save A Life Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to assisting those seeking recovery from heroin/opioid use disorder. Assistance is provided through financial, inspirational, and peer support. We have found that a person in recovery is more likely to succeed when they are both emotionally and financially supported. Support from family, friends, and community is crucial in order to make recovery possible.
There are many extremely valuable organizations and websites that help to raise awareness of addiction, break the stigma surrounding addiction and to give moral support to family members and loved ones of those addicted. These sites provide education and list places and resources for help. The need for these resources, sites and organizations is tremendous. Despite all of this, there is usually one area, of addiction and recovery not addressed; the funds needed for those in recovery from substance use disorder to become clean and lead productive lives.
To some people in recovery, something as simple as daily transportation to a medication assisted treatment facility, the cost of a copayment for a suboxone prescription, or a ride to a detoxification facility can be a huge barrier which prevents recovery from continuing. *Josh Bressette Commit To Save A Life Inc. provides financial assistance in the form of bus passes and payments to cab companies for transportation to medication assisted treatment facilities, detoxification and rehabilitation facilities, and other recovery related appointments. Payments are made to pharmacies, doctor offices, and treatment facilities for prescriptions, co-payments, and office visits.
