EVENT DATE: Nov 25, 2012

THE STORY:

The mission of Therapeutic Health Services is to rehabilitate individuals and heal families affected by alcohol dependence, drug dependence, and/or mental illness.

We are proud to host The Layne Staley Memorial Fund, which was created in 2002 in memory of Layne Staley, lead singer of Alice in Chains. The fund provides hope, education, support and treatment funds for heroin recovery in the Seattle music community, through THS.

Layne was the lead singer of the multi-platinum rock group, Alice In Chains, which was formed in Seattle in 1987. He was also a member of the super groups Mad Season and Class of ’99. Throughout most of his career Layne suffered from heroin addiction. He eventually died April 5th, 2002 from an overdose.

Shortly after Layne’s death, his parents Nancy McCallum and Phil Staley started receiving donations from fans all over the world. Nancy and Phil worked with THS to create Layne Staley Memorial Fund. Nancy says that she saw LSMF as a way of “partnering with Layne on the next step in his work. He was very honest with people about the effects of drug use, urging them not to follow in his footsteps. Those were the messages in his songs, endearing him to his fans.”

The Fund is designed so that only the interest from donations is used for treatment. Your donation will always be at work. Because addiction is a “revolving-door disease,” Nancy and Phil want to make sure that there will always be money available to help musicians in need.
