Jerry needs outpatient and recovery

A dear friend, and great guy, is in SERIOUS TROUBLE and needs our help.

His alcohol addiction has brought him to the lowest point in his life. His wife, children, business, home and even his life are almost at the point of being lost for good.  He has approached what those of us in recovery refer to as "the jumping off point"- that critial junction  where the desperation becomes greater than the resistance to change.  It is in this moment where recovery becomes possible. But time is of the essence. 

As a recovered alcoholic (sober over 12 years), who has helped many people to gain recovery, I can attest to the mighty challenges facing my friend. But with the right assistance I know he can become the wonderful and happy guy so many of us know and love.

His body, mind and spirit are bankrupt. Some of us have vowed to do whatever it takes. I will leave my job and life immediately,  and for as long as necessary,  to go help him.

Need to raise some money to cover a flight, expense, and for outpatient care. Anything you can contribute to these costs would be immensely appreciated.

***Our original goal has been met!!!!  Anything additional will still be helpful & utilized for groceries/fuel & incidentals directly related to Jerry's living sitution (which is quite awful).  Do not give unless you can really afford it.

Thank you everyone.
