What is our goal in the long run?
Matt's Mission exists to end the stigma and shame of drug addiction. The nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization seeks to educate people on the disease of addiction focusing on treatment not punishment, to assist with policy changes creating new paths to treatment, and to unite law enforcement, community and treatment facilities together with individuals suffering from substance use disorders.
The specific objectives and purposes of this organization are:
1. To provide awareness of addiction as a disease focusing on treatment not punishment.
2. To provide pathways into treatment and services for individuals suffering from addiction without shame, blame or arrest.
"It is about saving lives, rebuilding families, helping individuals on a lifelong road to recovery and combating the stigma associated with addiction."
