The HAWC sees value in every recovery pathway. Our mission is to identify the most appropriate pathway for each individual based on willingness, specific life circumstances and previous experiences, simultaneously improving their quality of life and improving the current recovery landscape.
HAWC recognizes the divide in ideologies of pathways to recovery. We also recognize the,Strength in numbers, philosophy. One of our primary goals is to strengthen and unify these cultures with a goal of a recovery community unified by way of different avenues pursuing a similar purpose.
HAWC will support every individual in making an informed decision regarding their personal journey in recovery. We recognize setbacks can happen along this quest. HAWC will be a resource for the current recovery landscape should an incident occur. We will support the individual through a re-stabilization period and our assessment protocol, to identify contributing factors to the event.
"Substance abuse costs our Nation over $600 billion annually and treatment can help reduce these costs. Drug addiction treatment has been shown to reduce associated health and social costs by far more than the cost of the treatment itself. Treatment is also much less expensive than its alternatives, such as incarcerating addicted persons." NIH
"According to several conservative estimates, every dollar invested in addiction treatment programs yields a return of between $4 and $7 in reduced drug-related crime, criminal justice costs, and theft. When savings related to healthcare are included, total savings can exceed costs by a ratio of 12 to 1." - NIH Report
"The average cost for 1 full year of methadone maintenance treatment is approximately $4,700 per patient, whereas 1 full year of imprisonment costs approximately $24,000 per person." NIH
