Inc. (HCSI) – Where Science Meets Addiction – is a
Miami based non-profit created to provide support and funding to financially strapped teens and adults in dire need of addiction treatment while educating the public to addiction prevention. Through your generous donations we've been able to exceed our goals. Because of you're generosity, we've recruited the most notable authorities in addiction from around the world to help develop cutting edge-evidenced based therapies to improve outcomes including our chief science officer, world renowned geneticist Dr.
Kenneth Blum, discoverer of the addiction/alcohol gene. Last year we were able to provide ten individuals with the treatment they so desperately needed. As of our last follow-up, all of these people are clean and sober. It's quite a testament to HCSI's efforts and the quality treatment they received. Our local outreach has significantly improved by partnering with synergistic groups and organizations, such as Rockers In Recovery, ITC Tennis and the police department. In doing so we've were able to reach masses previously unobtainable by us. Through our national and international outreach, we were able to share new cutting edge evidenced-based and scientifically-proven modalities through keynote speakerships at six national addiction treatment conventions last year. In March of 2013 we will be represented at the 1st International Conference on Behavioral Addictions with a keynote speakership. Your generous donations are saving lives and making a difference in the awareness, prevention and treatment of addiction.
