HOPE AND OVERCOMING INC.

THE STORY:

 

Hope and OVERcoming, Inc is a NON PROFIT organization based out of Hamilton County Indiana and servicing all of Indiana.  We are dedicated to raising awareness, providing prevention and education and supporting those living in the crisis of opiate addiction.

We are committed to RECOVERY and helping individuals who suffer from substance use disorder find long term, therapeutic treatment and helping them to maintain recovery.

 

With the lack of resources in Indiana and so many financial barriers causing a lack of treatment for all who seek, Hope and OVERcoming, Inc. exists to help steer anyone and everyone who wants recovery to get the treatment they deserve.

Hope and OVERcoming, Inc. operates on a donations basis only to continue to help families across the Hoosier State.  Our volunteers work relentlessly with care and compassion to ensure that all those in need, get a chance.

With your help we can continue to operate and service those who suffer, service families, educate and support.

We offer:

  • Prevention and Education Programs
  • Recovery Coaching
  • Support Groups
  • Recovery Groups
  • Project U-TURN for teens
  • Interventions
  • Treatment Placement and insurance education
