Theodore Endy, a retired fire chief and resident of Rome, was recently named a member of the Lifesavers Club of Road2RecoveryCNY.
The club is comprised of individuals, groups, or businesses that completely fund a grant through Road2RecoveryCNY.
These grants help fund long-term treatment for CNY residents struggling with opioid addiction.
Road2RecoveryCNY facilitates the transfer and admission of recipients to a 90 day residential treatment program that relies on the 12 steps to help them learn how to stay sober, followed by 90 days in a sober house where they begin working and practicing what they have learned, according to an announcement by the organization.
So far, they have helped 10 people get sober. Recipients begin repaying the loan 90 days after they finish treatment to help “pay it forward” and replenish the fund for other people who need help.
