WHO WE ARE 

Models Against Addictions Foundation (501) (c)( 3) chose the name because we acknowledge the power and influence that models and the fashion industry have to lend their voices in society. Our mission is to STOP the stigma of addictions and integrate meditation in recovery. 

WHY ADDICTIONS :

 We believe that by removing the stigma of addictions we can save lives and you can help us by donating .ONLY  20 % of the population with addictions ask for help. Many people die and family members and friends say I wish I knew. Is time to transform “difficult” to “Important “We have Opioid Crisis  116 people died every day and we still have a social deny of open discussion of heinous stigma.

WHY MEDITATION: 

Meditation ( breathing work )is a system of yogic science which can help to break habits, addictions & addictive behavior. It helps individuals to remain calm and be non-reactive in challenging life situations and helps detach from thoughts and impulses, which can help reduce cravings and prevent relapse.

• Reduce stress and improves the quality of sleep

HOW WE ARE CHANGING THE STIGMA and what makes us different.

We created the un-dependent project when on the 11th day of each month
, we promote and encourage individuals to examine their lives and identify and confront their various dependencies then stop them for 24 hours.  Allowing those who are unaware of the power of addiction to analyze their own lives and gain a greater understanding of challenges facing those struggling with addiction every day. 

OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PROGRESS  FOR CHANGING THE STIGMA 

A $10 dollar a day spend reaches 42,248 people that day.

Our efforts are estimated to reach up to 3.6 million people in 2019 for the purpose of eliminating the stigma of addiction and cultivating a community of compassion for those seeking to address their addictions and dependencies.

 RAISING THE MONEY FOR MEDITATION

WHY YOU SHOULD HELP:

Addiction is still perceived as a moral failing by the general public and is neglected from legal and administrative authorities and society.Stigma is one of the meanest and most difficult aspects of addiction because it makes it harder for individuals, friends, and families to deal with their problems and get the help they need. 

Your voice is going to help so many people that are close to your heart. This is our moment in expanding human consciousness and awareness and taking a stand for each other's deepest pains and showing up for literally everyone. We are so powerful when we own our weaknesses fearlessly. Let's make a history.

THANK YOU FOR READING 

I am grateful for your attention, and whatever brought you to me today.  My name is Asia, and I am the creator of that video above (do watch it) and the founder of non-profit Models Against Addictions. I'm a cockroach because I can overcome anything and nothing can kill me.

I would like you to know: My father, addicted to alcohol as long as I knew him, took away my childhood and ended his life by committing suicide. My brother, addicted to alcohol, ended his life by committing suicide. My children's addictions stopped them from continuing their education. My soulmate, love of my life, couldn't overcome his addictions, which destroyed the ability to trust & love.  My heart, as you can see, has been broken, and broken again, and again. 

My addictions in the past prevented me from a conscious and balanced life, and I almost died 2 times.  I transformed from a victim into a warrior; from an addict to a cockroach.  When I learned that the denial of my inner turmoil was what was killing me because I felt more alone than ever, and I realized that the addiction was the outlet representing a trauma from much earlier years, that I couldn't acknowledge. 

They are a lot of available treatment options including  AA which helped me and many people in recovery.I combined them with meditation practice which transformed me and made un-dependent from anything and anyone.  I am here to show you what can be done, by talking about it.

STOP HIDING YOUR SUFFERING AND START SHARING YOUR HUMAN EXPERIENCE

For the last few years, I spent all my energy, time and finances on my charity with personal funds to pay for everything. In fact, we operate on no budget with help of friends & volunteers and our office is donated to us and with no administration cost. We are very honest and transparent and we could do so much more.

I want you to know how your contribution makes you powerful. You can give people a chance to be involved. This campaign was created by 2 cockroaches who care about you.
