 The mission of this organization is to heal and help persons addicted to drugs. I had an uncle who was addicted to drugs, his addiction start after his mother's death. He started getting episodes of depression and also his stepfather kick him out of the house leaving him in the streets, my mom worked hard trying to help him get off of drugs but she didn't have success, he always went back to them. My uncle got HIV, hepatitis C, and other diseases. He ended up dying in the hospital alone, without anyone, calling my mom. I want to help those people making a free clinic, give those people the option to also work with us when they heal, but the most  important thing would be to go to the streets heal and help them. Our vision is use the technology, the experiences, the clinical expertise to succeed in our mission and help those people who need hope, love and health.
Drug addiction is the dependency of the use of illegal or medicated drugs. Once you are addicted you don't have the control  over the use of drugs and keep using them knowing the harm that you are making to your body and health. Most of the people want to quit but they can't by themselves, they need help. To know the truth about drugs and how it feels we need to hear, those who have “been there.”:
“My goal in life wasn't living...it was getting high. I was falling in a downward spiral towards a point of no return. Over the years, I turned to cocaine, marijuana and alcohol under a false belief it would allow me to escape my problems. It just made things worse. I had everything, a good job, money, a loving family, yet I felt so empty inside. As if I had nothing. Over twenty years of using, I kept saying to myself, I’m going to stop permanently after using this last time. It never happened. There were even moments I had thought of giving up on life.” —John

What I want to do with this organization is to give addicts hope, health and love. Because maybe tomorrow, you will see an addict in the streets and it could be a member of your family or it can be you. I want to hear of them:
“I asked myself if this is rock bottom, and I believe that it was. While observing these homeless people I decided that I had had enough. Yes I wanted drugs, but I realized that I could want life more.” --Ben. 
And hearing that I would feel that we can do it, we can finish with that, we can make a better world. Helping those persons will gave me the best satisfaction. 100 people die from drug overdoses every day in the United States, but I want this number to be 0.

I'm sorry for what happened to your uncle, it's tragic, but thanks for sharing that with all of us, it helps understand why you chose this cause as your own. Drug addiction is terrible, and is an issue that needs addressing, and I feel like you could've said more on how and what you would like to do to help recovering addicts. It's a difficult issue and it's commendable you'd like to eradicate it, but I was left with a bit of curiousity as to how you'd take on such a task.
