What the Riverside Foundation does:

Currently, 24 million people in the United States suffer from substance abuse disorder, one and a half as many times as all cancers combined and nearly the same amount as all people diagnosed with diabetes. Just like any other chronic disease, the effect that substance abuse and addiction has on family members exponentially magnifies the issue, not only stressing relationships but also often exhausting financial resources.

The Riverside First Step Foundation serves the community by bridging that financial gap that stands frequently between addicts and effective treatment. More specifically, provides funds to assist in meeting the basic co-pay to receive treatment.
