My name is Mary Ann Torres and my son, Jayson is in recovery.  In 2016 my daughter, my sister and I walked because this epidemic tried to steal the people we love.  We needed support and to know that we were not alone.  Since then my son has lost two of his closest friends to this horrific disease....and now we walk in memory of Kyle Richards and John Littleton.  The money our team raises will go to support Sober Living houses through Stop the Heroin.  Please help us help others. 

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.
