WHO WE ARE
A STORY ABOUT US
The DCT Foundation was created after our beautiful son, Dan, died at the age of 24 from an accidental drug overdose. While he suffered from the disease of addiction for the last 7 years of his precious short life, this didn’t define him. He was bright, caring, funny, and athletic and loved by many. The pain of losing our son was crippling. The memories of that devastating day on December 3rd, 2010, is somewhat clouded. But the shock, numbness, emptiness, tears and pain that filled our bodies is something that may never be completely forgotten. The final good-by from a parent to a child is an unnatural act, and one that may have been prevented if we had the resources, education, treatment, and prevention tools.
HERE'S OUR MISSION
WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE?
The DCT Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations fund our Overdose Prevention/Response Program, outreach services, and assistance for people to enter Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery. The cost of SUD treatment can range from free to over $100,000 for a 30 day stay. Also, most recovery homes have a weekly and or administrative fee. Our community outreach efforts include but are not limited to supplying and training in the use of naloxone, serving some of the most vulnerable populations and those at risk for a fatal overdose. We have provided refurbished computer equipment to recovery homes for job search and support system communication, personal care kits that are supplied to various treatment facilities for those entering without items, and a variety of resources to the homeless.
