Treatment support is another way that Hanley Foundation addresses substance use addiction from multiple fronts. This holistic effort is needed because no single approach on its own will solve the epidemic of addiction in our country. For example, currently, 2.5 million Americans are addicted to opioids. From 1999 to 2015, the number of fatalities due to opioid overdoses rose from 8,200 to 33,000 annually. In the last two years, more Americans died from opioid addiction than died during the entire Vietnam War.
Because of the stigma associated with addiction and the fact that many insurance companies don’t cover the full cost of treatment, individuals often don’t get the quality care they need. Hanley Foundation supports top quality treatment by providing scholarships to individual treatment centers in Florida and nationwide when patients are unable to afford treatment. In addition to this high-quality treatment support, we are working with Palm Beach County leaders and others across the state to lend our prevention, education, and advocacy expertise to the battle against substance addiction.
Treatment works. People do recover.
