Rooting for Recovery Plants Trees in Memory of Those Lost to Drug Overdoses Serving Colorado

The Rooting for Recovery’s mission is to plant trees across America in honor of those who lost their battle to drugs. Planting a tree is a living tribute to honor that special someone by planting a tree in your community to express feelings and share with others. As a community, we need to flip the discrimination of the criminal justice approach to substance use towards a proven public health solution. We are dedicated to drug proofing communities with the FLIP approach.

Portugal has successfully and effectively flipped addiction from the criminal justice system to the healthcare system. This method has been proven in Portugal and in Dayton, Ohio and we would like to help get this type of program implemented Nationally. We need to simply decide that we are NOT going to punish our people for having a potentially fatal disease. We can and must advocate to remove all obstacles for our cherished loved ones to recover from drug addiction.

Treatment Not Jail – Alternatives to IncarcerationColorado

Treatment Not Jail – Alternatives to Incarceration Serving Colorado, CO

We all recognize that law enforcement has a front row seat to stop the opioid epidemic and are in a unique position to prevent drug overdose deaths through recovery treatments. The Police Assisted Addiction & Recovery Initiative (PAARI) provides training, strategic guidance, support, and resources to help law enforcement agencies nationwide create pathways to treatment, not jail. They have customized programs based on each community and can utilize multiple law enforcement entry points to recovery treatments. Some treatments involve medications that can be used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, which have contributed to lowering overdose deaths. Let’s all work together, rooting for recovery in educating patients, caregivers, and the community about the benefits of having these medications readily available to more people. Reach out and find more information about these recovery and treatment medications:

  • Naloxone, (also known as Narcan) is designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose.
  • Naltrexone, is used to prevent people who have been addicted to certain drugs (opiates) from taking them again.
  • Suboxone, is used as part of a medical, social and psychological treatment program for patient’s dependent on opioids like heroin, morphine, oxycodone or codeine.
  • Vivitrol, is a monthly injection that contains naltrexone (an opioid antagonist) which is injected intramuscularly into the buttocks. Naltrexone helps reduce opioid and alcohol cravings.

Grieving Caregivers, Family, and Friends Support Groups Serving Colorado

No one could ever understand the pain and suffering family and friends endure after losing someone from an overdose death. The Rooting for Recovery team has been reaching out to communities across America to raise public awareness on drug prevention and drug treatments. They are asking that all communities implement the Police Assisted Addiction Recovery Initiative (PAARI); plant, donate, or register a memorial tree in your town or county in honor of someone who lost their battle to drugs; share prevention information about fentanyl poisoning, fake pills, addictive opioids like oxycontin, and information on overdose deaths in your town or county; place student assistance counselors in the schools and community (http://asapnj.org); start a municipal alliance (community coalition with leaders, police and parents) and fund the grass roots with drug fine money for school and community prevention programs (https://www.gcada.nj.gov).

Our network of grieving moms, dads, caregivers, family, and friends have volunteered to make a difference through their communities and other communities by reaching out to others who are grieving as well. We encourage planting trees in all communities in honor of those special to you. Planting trees across America in honor of Loved ones can be found on https://rootingforrecovery.net/ Website.
