I truly believe we are all connected and this epidemic is a threat in some way to each and every one of us. Most of us need a second chance at some point in our lives…this program tries to give just that and I am excited to be a part.

Brooke is a pre-med college student at NSU Davie, FL with a drive to make a difference through education and extending a hand to those in need. The opioid crisis has personally affected Brooke’s family and those close to her which has fueled her to assist in supporting the mission of The Robin Foundation. “Our goal is to reach someone, teach someone, save someone” a quote found in The Robin Foundation’s mission statement resonated with Brooke, for this can partly explain the reason she is pursuing the practice of medicine. Brooke will be assisting the foundation to reach out to students at Nova University by passing out Narcan and providing on-site training.
The Robin Foundation, with years of experience, knows that the road to sobriety is more challenging for some women than others. We offer the best recovery house for women to overcome the rotating cycle of rehabilitation and relapse with no end. And such women are also vulnerable to overdosing, a present clear danger. Hence our foundation requires volunteers need for the opioid pandemic.
Opioid overdosing is prevalent among men and in the US and women, causing a steep rise because of deaths. It is one reason for the US IRC or Internal Revenue Code to have a specific tax category, Section 501 ( C ) ( 3), to exempt recovery houses for women run by NGOs from federal taxable income.
Hence those donating to 501 ( C ) (3) recovery homes run by The Robin Foundation will get an exemption from the federal tax.
The Robin Foundation is committed to helping addicted women using MAT or medically assisted treatment in a recovery house. MAT is a therapy to be more than a medication for professional administration in a supervised setting. And the other best form is offering them in a recovery house for women. It will help the women become sober by sharing many things with others with the same problems. Also, it will help to avoid relapse and cut the vicious cycle of rehabilitation and relapse, which could be more harmful to addicted women. And for that purpose. Volunteers are needed for opioid treatment to help the overdosed and addicted women to lead a normal life again.
Our team of experienced volunteers with enough training in dealing with opioid addiction persons and even saving their lives during emergencies offer the best MAT. They help them in transitional or halfway treatment or recovery houses for women with all the facilities for rehabilitation and resettlement services. Our MAT program will provide a better future for addicted women with clean, safe, and sober living one day at a time. Our 501 ( C ) (3) recovery home for women empowers them to overcome many mental and physical issues to become a positive role models in the future for other such affected people. We provide them with safe living in the best recovery house for women in a clean and sober atmosphere. Also, it will help them to connect with resources and reconnect with their children and family. Hence they can gain stability to continue sobriety and also be an example and hope for other addicted people
Studies confirm that though medication is an effective tool for the addicted persons’ recovery process, the ultimate key is the individual’s rehabilitation. Medications can control the addicted person not to using opioids and other abusive substances. But once discontinuing the medicine, it will tend to relapse and become an addicted person again. However, with proper rehabilitation in our recovery house for women and with proper care and concern, there are more chances of continuing to be sober for the remaining life. Also, to become successful in specific fields, having seen the worst, not to lose anything more.
