EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
I am running in the 2012 Boston Marathon to raise funds for Bay Cove’s Addiction Services programs.
Bay Cove’s Addiction Services programs offer a continuum of drug and alcohol addiction services, including substance abuse prevention, detoxification, short-term residential programming, individual and group counseling, and out-patient treatment for opiate addiction.
We believe that addiction is a medical condition and that with effective, long-term treatment tailored to individual needs, people with drug addiction can recover and lead productive lives.
The ultimate goal of drug addiction treatment is to enable an individual to achieve lasting abstinence, but the immediate goals are to reduce drug abuse, improve the patient's ability to function, and minimize the medical and social complications of drug abuse and addiction.
