DAYS TO GO: 58
Step Up for Recovery is PEER Services' annual stair climb to raise treatment scholarships for teens and adults struggling with addiction. PEER Services has been providing addiction prevention and treatment services to residents of northern Cook County since 1975. We are committed to reducing stigma around addiction, treating all our clients with dignity, and providing high-quality and affordable substance use treatment to teens and adults.
Addiction is a treatable disease, but individuals with substance use challenges often face barriers to recovery. There are 23.5 million people in the U.S. struggling with addiction, yet only 11% actually receive treatment. Stigma and shame lead many to suffer in silence, while lack of income or insurance makes it difficult for others to access treatment. Your donation will provide funds to make treatment possible for teens and adults in need, as well as demonstrate your support and advocacy for individuals working towards long-term recovery.
PEER Services is a non-profit 501c3 organization. All donations are tax-deductibe as permitted by law. Proceeds from this event will provide treatment scholarships for teens and adults seeking help for their addiction.
