DEI Scholarship Fund
More people need access to high-quality treatment and care regardless of their background.
In partnership with Ashley Addiction Treatment, The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Scholarship Fund aims to improve racial diversity within treatment settings and remove financial barriers to treatment.
Studies show that despite similar rates of substance use disorder, people of color—including Black, Hispanic, Latinx, Native American and Asian Americans—are generally more likely to encounter barriers that limit their ability to access or successfully complete treatment, such as cost and other socioeconomic factors when compared to white Americans. Identifying how these disparities show up in addiction treatment settings, and how to address them, is a critical goal for helping all people with substance abuse struggles achieve recovery. Since its inception, The Release Foundation has allocated over $120,000 to this scholarship fund so that more people have the chance to recover.
Your contributions to this fund will help us make treatment more accessible for people in need and show that everyone is welcome no matter what.
