For those unfamiliar with Save The Michaels, their organization raises awareness of prescription and other drug addictions. Abuse and misuse of these controlled substances leads to serious illness, depression, deaths from overdose and suicide, and the devastation of caregivers and loved ones. Save The Michaels House of Hope and Community Resources supports families during their loved one’s journey through addiction and into remission. They provide a nurturing and supportive environment to parents, grandparents and spouses of addicted individuals. They practice compassion and promote education, self-help and wrap-around care before, during, and after treatment.

Save the Michaels recognizes that celebrating diversity and inclusion is not only the right thing to do, it is what they want to do and must do for their organization, the people they serve and the entire community. This commitment is woven into their values and beliefs that their organization is strongest when they embrace the full spectrum of humanity regardless of what people look like, where they come from, or who they love. That means both building a more diverse, more inclusive workplace and promoting what they call “courageous engagement” throughout their organization and the people they serve. Save The Michaels is proud to state race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, age, and / or disability is nor ever has been a barrier to obtaining help. Substance use disorders and mental health issues do not discriminate and as such, we are all the same in that regard and should be treated compassionately as equals.
