I CHOOSE RECOVERY TODAY BECAUSE…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We asked the women at Fellowship Living Facilities in Ft. Lauderdale why they choose recovery today.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”3429″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” css_animation=”left-to-right”][vc_column_text]

I choose recovery because I want to live today. I found that in believing in a higher power I started believing in myself. I found my worth and know I have a purpose today. My life is worth living. My story could be the key that unlocks someone else’s prison.

I choose recovery today because I deserve a better quality of life than anger and disappointment. My son deserves a sober responsible mother. My family deserves someone who will suit up and show up and I deserve freedom.

I choose recovery because it took me from my worst misery, and allowed me the opportunity to become the best version of myself, better than I ever thought possible. I couldn’t be more grateful to be able to give that hope to someone else who needs it now, just like I did.

I choose recovery today because I would rather see the world in color than in black and white.

ANTHONY’S ACT

 

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate.

The Affordable Care Act must be amended to provide for a minimum of Ninety (90) days inpatient drug or alcohol treatment up to a maximum of One Hundred Eighty (180) days per year at a facility certified to provide suchcare by the Secretary of Health of the state in which it is located.

Every day in this country 119 people die from drug overdose, and another 6,748 are treated in emergency rooms. That averages out to an overdose related hospitalization every 13 seconds and an overdose death every 13 minutes. Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, outstripping traffic fatalities or gun homicides. Anthony's Act

And every year it gets worse.

In addition to the terrible human toll, substance abuse costs the U.S. economy over $600 billion annually. Effective treatment can dramatically reduce these costs. According to several conservative estimates, every dollar invested in addiction treatment programs yields a return of between $4 and $7 in reduced drug-related crime, criminal justice costs, and theft. When savings related to healthcare are included, total savings can exceed costs by a ratio of 12 to 1. Major savings to the individual and to society also stem from fewer interpersonal conflicts; greater workplace productivity; and fewer drug-related accidents, including overdoses and deaths.
