Our mission at Root to Rise is to break the mental barriers and stigmas associated with addiction and recovery by building community through physical activity and mental wellness programs.
Root to Rise is the organization created to help fight addiction. Our belief is that consistent physical and mental activity coupled with learning how to lead a healthy lifestyle, while being embraced by a strong community of like-minded individuals, can help prevent relapse for those in recovery. Our goal is to open a facility in Asbury Park, New Jersey where we will provide free services to those in recovery. We believe this will be especially helpful for those who are fresh out of rehab, as we work together to provide them with the tools to embrace a healthy lifestyle, and a strong support system.
Root to Rise and the community has been so blessed to have so much support in our mission of breaking the stigma of addiction, and by helping addicts to overcome life’s challenges through physical and mental activity. If you don’t think addiction affects you, think again. If you are not yourself struggling, then you definitely at least know one person who is. Addiction is an epidemic, and we need to stop fighting a war on drugs, and to start healing the behavior and the pain that causes someone to become addicted.
