Addiction Resources

We want to engage the action sports athlete community in a comfortable conversation about drug abuse. The situations, opportunities, temptations and lifestyles that can lead to drug or alcohol addiction are a very real part of the action sports industry. Some of the greatest and most inspiring athletes have been lost to our community due to the neglect given to this issue in our industry until now. Drug-related deaths and accidents are tragic and preventable. Fallen Athletes Fund provides confidential financial and judgment-free assistance for clients in need of addiction recovery services. If you know of someone in the action sports industry who is struggling with an addiction issue, please contact us. We can and will help. Email us at: info@fallenathletesfund.org

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who suffer from a drinking problem. With groups available all over the world, AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, political affiliation, organization or institution. There are no requirements to participate. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.

Free Recovery Groups

We know that supporting inpatient treatment is the very first step toward long-term sobriety. However, the most challenging work of the recovering addict comes when the client leaves treatment and re-enters their daily lives. Now clean and sober, they find themselves surrounded by the triggers, temptations, individuals, and lifestyle that they took leave of in order to save their own lives. They are again faced with friends and colleagues who are still using, travel schedules that are demanding, injuries and other frustrations that can lead to relapses, parties, events and venues that remind them of the past and frequent cues to use again. To assist our clients in recovery, Fallen Athletes Fund encourages enrollment in free recovery support groups that offer a safe environment in which clients can discuss the challenges of staying clean and sober.

Please contact any of the groups below for more information about their services and joining.
