More than 23 million Americans experience addiction disease at some stage of illness. Less than ten percent receive appropriate, professional health care. One out of four families experience addiction disease within the family and with significant health effects on all members.
The Aquila Recovery Foundation, affiliated with the Aquila Recovery Clinic of Washington, DC, works to
(a) push health responses to addiction to earlier stages of illness,
(b) engage the primary health profession in identifying early stages of disease,
(c) support individuals in recovery through education and financial assistance, and
(d) help all American realize their stake in mainstreaming addiction health – saving lives and money.
