Rising Above Disease (RAD) is a non-profit dedicated to assisting and encouraging women on their journey in recovery from addiction. Our mission is to help them improve their lives using the resources and guidance from our community.
We provide the most basic of human needs, a roof over their heads, a comfortable bed, a clean shower and the comfort of other women who want to help. We provide assistance in obtaining medical care, dental care and mental health services. We assist our residents in the overwhelming tasks of straightening out the unmanageability of their lives. The bank, the DMV and the Social Security office are often scary places for a confused woman in early recovery. We walk side by side with these women, as we empower them to manage the details of their lives. These simple skills, that many of us take for granted, could be the deal-breaker that drives a woman back to her previous lifestyle. Guidance and support also offered.
