To provide scholarship funds and assistance to those suffering from substance use disorders seeking treatment for their disease and unable to meet the basic co-pay standards of admission. Secondarily, to help them as they complete treatment and start the road to recovery.
Almost 24 million Americans are addicted to alcohol and drugs. The effect addiction has on families and loved ones multiplies the problem exponentially. The Riverside First Step Foundation, Inc. was formed in 2017 as a Florida not-for-profit and 501 c3 Federally tax-exempt corporation to help bridge the financial gap that stands between those suffering from substance use disorders and effective treatment, and to further provide assistance as they continue their journey of recovery. Through your generous support we can help provide much needed financial help that can mean the difference between success and further heartbreak in the lives of those affected by alcoholism and addiction, as well as in the lives of their families and loved ones.
