Take Off the Mask off Addiction
Proceeds of this event go towards the operation of the Center for Young Adult Addiction and Recovery research initiatives with a focus on recovery science as well as spread awareness to the community about the disease of addiction.
Every day the disease of addiction goes unnoticed to most of us. It is masked by the faces of individuals who function in society unnoticed until the disease has progressed, resulting in behavioral and physical consequences. In addition, we as individuals are stunned at the sudden deaths, the broken relationships and the escalating cost to society. We are often surprised when the masks of our neighbors, our loved ones and our friends are removed - shattering the long held belief that addiction can never happen to “me.”
