Many like-minded people were conversing about the Opioid crisis and how it is affecting their lives and those of their loved ones. They swapped stories about how little support and resources they could find to help and how the stigma of substance abuse hampered their efforts. Then they said - LET'S DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
A call was put out to the community - WHO WAS INTERESTED IN CREATING A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION TO COMBAT THE IMPACT OF THE OPIOID CRISIS? Overwhelming support and a first meeting -
Then the C.A.T.E. Foundation was born of a community effort. Each member of our Board of Directors has a personal story of the impact of substance abuse. Each one is committed to Conquering Addiction Through Education
UPDATE: we have evolved to recognizing that there are many people suffering from all types of addictions. CATE is dedicated to helping whomever walks through our door -whether it be drugs, alcohol, gambling, food or other addictions.
