Non Profit Organization
California is a state which suffers from substantial cases of substance abuse, the reason for which is mainly the easy availability of drugs to people. Drugs like cocaine, heroin, meth and marijuana are illegally transported from Mexico into the state. However there is also internal production for meth and marijuana in California itself. This has resulted ion increase in substance abuse amongst adolescents and young adults. Our organization is a non-profit organization which is trying to provide rehabilitation and healthcare facilities to the young generation suffering from substance abuse free of cost.
We recognize that these individuals require emotional support as well as medical support to rid themselves of their addiction as they are at the stage of their lives where they are supposed to be formulating their careers and making up their characters. In order to support the patients we provide them with a comprehensive three month basic program which comprises of the following: • Medical Detox: Our medical staffs, with the aid of professional doctors help and supervise the patients in eliminating the toxins from their body system.
The doctors perform routine check ups to ensure that the process is completed with the minimum number of complications • Physical Detox: After the bosy is rid of the drugs and toxins, the patients are aided to buil;d up their physical strength to combat the effects of the toxins and the medical detox treatment. These include regular exercise programs and physical excursions like hiking, surfing and swimming to make the program appealing to youngsters and help them bond with fellow patients.
A balance diet is also developed for each individual patient to help them gain back their nutrition and energy • Emotional Detox: In order to ensure that the patients are not forced to fall prey to drugs again they are provided special individual as well as group counseling session whereby the causes for their previous addiction to drug is determined and emotional support is provided to help them abstain from abusing substances in the future.
The emotional detox program established also aims to provide the patients with career counseling facilities and helps to develop and enhance positive influences in the patients social life by introducing them to different cultures, hobbies and interests which they might like to take up for their leisure time or even as a profession. However in order to provide all these services to the patients our organization requires funding for equipment, professional assistance as well as collaboration with your organization for providing scholarship programs for deserving individuals.
Aside from this currently our program is set for a 3 month period and we would like to increase the duration of the program to make way for 6 month and year long programs as well, however for this we would require additional funds regarding setting of the infrastructure, developing rehabilitation programs and paying for medicines and the salaries of the non voluntary staff.
We look forward to hearing form your organization in regard to any kind of support and funding that you would be able to provide for our organization. Any support provided would greatly help us in reorganizing and facilitating the rehabilitation process for our patients.
