My name is Heather Draper and I have been fighting the disease of addiction for more than half of my life. This is my very first sobriety walk and it means so much to me. I want to support and help raise money for those still struggling with this disease. I dont usually do fundraisers but this is a cause that I feel very passionate about as I have a brother and other people close to me and those I love who are still battling this every day. Any support at all is greatly appreciated. I love my life as a grateful recovering addict and I plan to stay involved in events like this. Thank you!

Stop the Heroin is dedicated to helping people who have successfully completed rehab transition into a sober living facility. We are often contacted by counselors who has a client who is going to be discharged but lack the funds to go into sober living.

Sober living is often an overlooked and under recognized but extremely valuable to ongoing sobriety. In fact, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine study states "among those who stayed in recovery housing for more than 60 days, more than 50 percent were drug-free at six months"

Stop the Heroin is a 501c3 organization ran completely by volunteers. 100% of donations go toward our mission of helping people into sober living.

We take care of the deposit, administrative fee, and first two weeks. This can be anywhere from $600 to $900, depending on the facility.

Since April 2016, we have helped over 150 people into sober living. Most continue to thrive in their sobriety.
