Josh Bressette Commit To Save A Life Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created in loving memory of Joshua Bressette, a 25 year old that lost his life due to his addiction to heroin.
Our organization promotes recovery by believing in the fact that people can and do recover! We are committed to providing assistance to individuals in Berkshire County MA and Southern VT who are seeking recovery from heroin/opioid use through financial, inspirational, and peer support.
There are many extremely valuable organizations and websites that help to raise awareness of addiction, break the stigma surrounding addiction and to give moral support to family members and loved ones of those addicted. These sites provide education and resources for help. The need for these resources, sites and organizations is tremendous. Despite all of this, there is usually one area of addiction and recovery not addressed; the funds needed for those in recovery from substance use to become clean and lead productive lives. The Josh Bressette Commit to Save a Life organization is unique in the fact that we can and do provide these financial services.
To some people in recovery, something as simple as daily transportation to a medication assisted treatment facility, the cost of a copayment for a suboxone prescription, or a ride to a detoxification facility can be a huge barrier which prevents recovery from continuing.
Josh Bressette Commit to Save a Life Inc. provides financial assistance in the form of bus passes and payments to cab companies for transportation to medication assisted treatment facilities, detoxification and rehabilitation facilities, and other recovery related appointments. Payments are made to pharmacies, doctor offices, and treatment facilities for prescriptions, co-payments, and office visits. The fund also sponsors one person per month in a sober/recovery home (up to $550 per month for up to 2 months). Funds may also be used for other recovery related services.
Josh Bressette Commit To Save A Life is operated by volunteers and funded through donations and fundraising efforts. Your donation to the recovery fund is extremely important in the success of our program.
Transportation, prescriptions, co-payments, and sober living rent are necessary in the day to day expenses needed for a person to recover from heroin/opioid use.
