Five Non-Profits That Deserve Your Dollar

By The Fix staff 12/26/11

As they say in recovery, "You've got to give it away to keep it." Here are five addiction and recovery organizations that could use your tax-deductible support.

The holidays are a time for giving and receiving. And while we at The Fix don't accept donations, we encourage people to reach out and give to one of the many worthy not-for-profit organizations that do. Through the New Year, we will feature a new organization every day and give you a chance to get involved and learn about the places that impact the recovery community the most. Like our twitter-chat partner Phoenix House, a leading nonprofit provider of substance abuse services since 1967. You can donate to them here and help support the thousands of people who travel their road to recovery thanks to Phoenix House's 120 programs. If you wish to donate specifically to America's youth, Natural High encourages middle and secondary school students to find their passion before they find drugs and the National Youth Recovery Foundation supports those young adults who have stopped using to live full lives in recovery, and then mobilize to help others do the same. 

At The Partnership at every donation you make will be matched by a member of its board to bolster resources for parents to cope with their teen-aged children's drug and alcohol abuse. Donating to Faces & Voices of Recovery will help provide funds to their advocacy movement and will help educate the country about important topics in recovery. These organizations all need our help and are at the very least worth checking out and getting involved with in any other way.  Stay tuned for more stories about our chosen organizations.
