We walk for this cause in memory of Jared. Jared lost his battle with addiction January 21, 2017 at the age of 24. Please don't let our loss be in vain. We do not want to see another family have to live with the loss of their loved one. Although Jared hoped to overcome his addiction that was not to be.

The funds will be used to help people transitioning from rehabilitation to sober living. This can be a vital step in helping the person gain some recovery time and support as they transition back to being healthy productive member's of our society. This is a oppurtinity to help another family gain back the family member that has been lost in addiction.

Please if you are able to give, no matter what the amount, to help secure a stable future for people suffering from addiction please consider donating. In the U.S. alone we lose on average 174 people a day to overdose deaths. This needs to stop. It is time to stand up and have the conversation. No one chooses to be addicted.

It is to late to help Jared but it is not to late for Jared to help save others. Addiction is a family disease. It touches everyone that has a relationship with the individual. You might think you don't know anyone addicted to drugs, yet you know us.

Please help us help others that are still suffering and wanting/needing the opportunity to change their lives and those they love.

Please donate in honor of our Jared; beloved son, brother and friend.

Thanks for you consideration.

Jared's Family

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.
