Helping Youth with Addiction - Book

$1,025 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 32 months
Hello, and Thank you for visiting my GoFundMe Page.

My name is Mark, and I am in the process finishing my first book about addiction recovery (substance abuse disorder), and mental health disorders.

This book is designed to assist high school students and young adults learn critical strategies to live a successful life in recovery, and/or be a support to others in recovery.

I have been in active substance addiction recovery for 5 1/2 years, and am currently earning a masters degree in psychology, (emphasis on addiction studies). I am currently a special education high school teacher, and have been teaching for 13 years. As I continue my studies, my ultimate goal is to set up an addiction / mental health recovery program for young adults.

I am currently having difficulty paying for creation software, publication, and design fees.

Any help and Assistance would be greatly appreciated.

First half of additional workbook is completed to go along with the book. This is going to be an awesome curriculum/ system for youth to use to learn about, and stay in active from addiction. I will post a picture of the cover of the book in the next couple days, and share the first part of the book with those who have and who donate.

Thank you again for all of your care and support!!!

As I continue to finish the book, "Addiction Treatment and Prevention Strategies for Youth", I am honored and thankful for the donations I have received so far. The money raised will go to publication, copyright, and design costs. If there is money left in the account, 100% of it will be donated to a youth addiction treatment center.
Thank you for allowing my dream to become a reality.
