Drug Rehab Services/Addicted.org
At Drug Rehab Services and Addicted.org, we feel that it is impossible to continue our mission without acknowledging and shedding light on the role of systemic racism in addiction, substance abuse treatment, and recovery in America. It is nothing new and is a pervasive element of our society. Fighting against addiction, we naturally find ourselves in alignment with all efforts that strengthen the human spirit and seek to end hatred, discrimination, and suffering.
We support Black Lives Matter and its goal to improve black people's lives by ending systemic racism and the ongoing violence against black communities.
To help spread awareness on this issue, we have created a resource to help individuals better understand how systemic racism is prevalent in substance abuse and addiction recovery. It discusses how outdated policies have created an unfair environment for people of color and proposes potential solutions for the future.
Lilyfield's mission is to provide stable, loving families for children and youth through adoption, foster care placements, specialized counseling for those impacted by adoption and foster care, independent living services for former foster youth, and EmpowerOKC, which is a prevention program that serves children and families at-risk of involvement with the foster care system.
