There are many stats and studies that try to explain the depths of addiction and homelessness, but here is our plain truth.
Addiction, alcoholism and/or homeless can strike anyone, from any walk of life, and at any time. These issues and diseases are not far from any individual. We all have a son, daughter, friend, relative of a friend, etc. who may be suffering. Addiction is close by and many times at arm’s length.
Addiction never sleeps, and it never takes a day off. It is of the utmost importance that the Vancouver Recovery Club remains open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is only possible through the support of the community.
Support may come in many different ways and from many different sources. The Vancouver Recovery Club depends on 3 major forms of support, all equally as necessary as the other.
- Financial support from individuals, corporations and agencies
- Donations in kind
- Donations of time, knowledge and expertise
It is only with all these forms of support are we able to help 24/7.
“Thank you for your support. You help us save lives!”
