Our Story

Our founders began as passionate health care providers working hard in ineffective health care silos, trying to support patients battling substance misuse and complex mental health disorders. Sadly, they quickly discovered an all too commonly observed revolving door of addiction, where a person’s struggle to navigate the current system often leads to relapse.

As the heartbreaking stories grew, they knew they had to do more, by coming together as one community. By empowering themselves with tools of compassion, education, and treatment options to help guide those battling addiction. Pathways to Recovery seeks to develop an infrastructure of robust health care and wrap-around that tailors each path to recovery to the person.

Your financial contribution will help to positively impact our most vulnerable people suffering from substance misuse, mental health disorders and infectious disease.
