What is One Bed. One Life?
One Bed. One Life is a fundraising campaign for a scholarship-based program that will provide treatment for EPIC Recovery Center patients who are unable to pay. We are asking for monetary donations to sponsor a bed and save a life. This can be done in a single or monthly donation.
Why One Bed. One Life?
This campaign is giving individuals the opportunity to save a life and assist a person on their recovery journey. So many people are affected by substance use, this is a way of giving back. One Bed. One Life is a sustainable campaign to maintain EPIC Recovery Center’s level of high-quality services to our most vulnerable citizens. Due to the increasing medical costs of treatment, there are some clients left unable to afford quality care.
On average, substance use treatment costs are far outweighed by their benefit to society, with an overwhelming 7:1 benefit-to-cost ratio. Substance use treatment for 60 days or more can save over $8,200 in healthcare productivity costs. Completion of substance use treatment is the strongest predictor of reunification with children of substance using parents.
Major savings to the individual and to society stem from fewer interpersonal conflicts and drug-related accidents, including overdoses and deaths.
The EPIC Recovery Center Program
The EPIC Recovery Center program offers several types of treatment services including detoxification, outpatient, residential, and the MARS (Medically-Assisted Recovery Services) Program. We base treatment plans on individual needs and accept patients who are at risk for physical withdrawal. Withdrawal is treated using medication in conjunction with individual and group therapy. A special focus includes MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment) as well as family and patient education.
