The Mission of the There is No Hero in Heroin foundation is to promote awareness, educate the public and encourage those struggling with addiction and those who love them. We are dedicated to raising the curtain on the epidemic of drug addiction in our schools, the scarcity of rehabilitation programs, and the need for quality federally and state funded rehab programs and hold drug courts and law enforcement more accountable. There is no hero in heroin, only those who overcome. What Are Our Goals? 1. Fundraising to provide scholarships to offset the cost of rehabilitation and family counseling. 2. Provide resource referral assistance nation-wide. 3. To assist in the establishment of local chapter support groups. 4. To organize, plan and hold the worldwide annual Black Monday Event Raising Awareness for Loved Ones Lost to Addiction. 5. Facilitate drug addiction seminars to various interest groups, including religious organizations, addiction recovery groups, and educational facilities. 6. Remain in contact with our legislators and congressmen to lobby for support increased funding for drug courts and quality drug rehabilitation programs. 7. Introduce the concept of Therapeutic Communities to the prison system.
