Vegas Stronger is a unique Non-Profit Organization 501(c)(3) focused on reversing the devastation caused to our community by the opiate epidemic and addiction. Our out-of-the box approach helps anyone afflicted, regardless of their race, socio-economic status, or housing situation, in an outpatient facility. We offer more than just traditional groups and are a growing facility with a sober boxing gym, coffee shop, bookstore, bicycle mission, and our customized “13 Core Elements Method.”
We facilitate that restoration to wholeness for individuals, families, and society at large, by creating awareness and providing access to both state-of-the-art and historically reliable remedies. Our services cater to all suffering from the depths of addiction. In many instances, residential rehab is not a viable or financial option.
Our alternatives can have everlasting, positive effects on our homeless population and community. This is for anyone trying to survive in our urban desert, where access to drugs and alcohol is easily accessible 24/7. Vegas Stronger’s vision is to literally get people off the streets, and into a lifestyle of health, hope, and love.
Our Mission is to reduce homelessness in our city through treating its root causes – substance-abuse disorders and mental illness. Through our diverse staff, we educate the public on best-practices in addressing our homeless crisis and utilize our thirteen strategies for treatment to free our city’s most underserved citizens from addiction and mental illness.
Our Credo is based on the principle that change is optimally effectuated when our Community is fully engaged in pulling together toward the desired outcome. All Las Vegans, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or any other demographic factor, deserve the opportunity to live a fully productive life free from addiction to opioids of every sort. Interventions required to achieve this outcome will include non-opioid-based medication assisted treatment, behavioral therapy, safe housing, case management as well as occupational and vocational training. In addition to those factors we also recognize the crucial healing role of nutrition, physical fitness, spirituality and fellowship. Vegas Stronger is dedicated to full facilitation and integration in the delivery of these remedies.
Our Vision is that through the application of our Credo, every opioid addicted person will be provided an easily accessible pathway to seek out, find and live their own best life through an individualized recovery process.
Our Founders aim to unite the Las Vegas community and bring solution-oriented action to bear on the challenges we face in battling the scourge of opioid addiction. Nothing could be more important than saving and improving the life of even one woman, man or baby afflicted by the opioid epidemic. The repercussions and reverberation of each such result will multiply and impact myriads within and beyond our locality.
In order to achieve the desired outcome – that every opioid addicted person will be provided an easily accessible pathway to seek out, find and live their own best life through an individualized recovery process – a robust hub-and-spoke network of community partners will be required.
Facilitating, providing and coordinating all these services will require funding. Vegas Stronger is a privately funded charity focused on reducing opiate addiction in Las Vegas. We will access grants as well as accept private donations. But above all, we will ensure all funding comes from, and is allocated to, sources that are consistent with our Mission, Credo and Vision.
