Stop Popping Foundation’s purpose is addressing and educating students ages 12 to adult on the dangers of opiates and to work towards the prevention of Prescription abuse and opiate addiction and to coordinate, and provide aid and relief to those who have found themselves dealing with opiate addiction and the struggle to free themselves from it.
We provide education by means of a one hour plus multi-media presentation that shocks and deeply touches our audiences with an in your face and graphic message” in schools, libraries, and other public venues as well as utilizing social media channels and the corporation’s website to provide facts, statistics, and other related data on causes, current efforts and solutions to to this Prescription drug and opiate abuse tragedy sweeping the nation.
We also provide assistance to persons who are seeking treatment for their opiate addiction but fall through the cracks in the system. Cracks like they have the wrong type of insurance or no insurance at all or they are told that their problem is not severe enough for them to qualify for treatment of their opiate addiction and are now forced to fight their addiction alone.
Finally, down the road we intend to rehab old hotel/motels and convert them to a living residence for those who have completed treatment and need a safe living environment with an onsite counselor and security.
