The mission of the North Texas Recovery Foundation is to eliminate financial and funding barriers to persons seeking recovery from alcoholism, and drug addiction...
The North Texas Recovery Foundation, a 501c3, exists for the sole purpose of supporting addiction treatment providers with monetary means to offer individuals and families means to be admitted to and complete addiction treatment and counseling even when they have no means to do this on their own. We offer financial help to fund treatment expenses for people seeking recovery from alcoholism, drug addiction, including prescriprion drugs in Dallas, and the North Texas area. This might not look the same as it once might have. While we still have the people "under the bridge" with the brown paper bag, regular folks like you and me deal with this terrible disease on a daily basis.
Short Definition of Addiction
Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, dimished recognition of significant problems with one's behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death. courtesy of the American Society of Addiction Medicine
