Why do so few of the people who struggle with alcohol or other drugs ever visit a place like Ten16?
Most of them don’t believe that their problem is bad enough to need professional help. If you ask their family or friends, you might get a different answer.
Rather than waiting for the missing 90% to show up at our doorstep, Ten16 is taking a message of hope to other places where they may end up.
This gives us an opportunity to talk with people about their current relationship with alcohol and drugs—without shame, judgment or confrontation.
Through outreach, we invite people to explore whether they would like to make a change and, if they do, connect them with places and resources to help.
