What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In our country, 1 out of every 3 families is dealing with at least one loved one with a substance use disorder and 1 in 10 people over the age of 13 have a substance use disorder. However, only 20% ever seek professional help. The number one reason they don’t ask is because of the stigma attached to this disease. Furthermore, when people do seek professional help, 9 out of 10 people are turned away because of a lack of beds (medical resources) or a lack of funds. For the first time, drug overdose death have exceeded 100,000 within one year. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, "Provisional data from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics indicate that there were an estimated 100,306 drug overdose deaths in the United States during 12-month period ending in April 2021, an increase of 28.5% from the 78,056 deaths during the same period the year before." We want to help combat these numbers and let people know that recovery is possible!

ARCHway Advocates for HOPE Program

Advocates for Hope are individuals thriving in recovery and caregivers affected by addiction. We offer conversations to individuals and families who don’t know where to turn. We provide emotional support, information, and advocacy for individuals and families regarding options for treatment, recovery housing, or other recovery resources.

The ARCHway HOPE Fund is the primary vehicle by which ARCHway is able to award grants and scholarships to recovery-oriented systems of care including treatment providers, recovery housing providers, recovery community organizations, and prevention. Scholarships have been used for a variety of needs including co-pays for treatment, rent in recovery housing, transportation to and from treatment, community outreach, educational/prevention efforts, and more.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Vision: We envision long-term recovery for everyone impacted by substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Mission: ARCHway Institute serves the community by providing education to increase awareness and transform perspectives around substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. As an organization, we advocate for long-term recovery by providing guidance and financial support to expand access to care and healthy solutions.

We want more individuals and families to find recovery!

ARCHway Institute aims to reduce stigma, increase awareness, and help people heal. We do this through three strategies - education, peer support, and financial assistance to increase access to care.

ARCHway Institute works to educate individuals, families, and communities about substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. We do this through our speaker series and free seminars and virtual events. We also utilize newsletters, social media, and our website to provide the public with information, resources, and stories of recovery/hope. In addition, we have created and distributed educational videos, and in 2021, we published a book called "Igniting Hope: The Story of a Community Lighting the Way to Recovery" about ARCHway's journey to help people recover. Through this education and being open to telling our own personal stories, we 1) hope to see more people reach out for professional help and 2) hope to see the community at large start changing some of the false notions and stereotypes people have about these disorders.

ARCHway provides peer support through our Advocates for HOPE Program. This program includes people thriving in recovery and caregivers who have been impacted by a loved one's substance use disorder, who can offer caring and compassionate conversation and support as well as guidance around the treatment and recovery resources that are available in the community. Our peers strive to connect people to the professional resources they need in order to recover. ARCHway truly believes in the value that peers bring to the behavioral health field, and so ARCHway has also partnered with the National Peer Recovery Alliance in its work to elevate and empower the peer workforce.

ARCHway also provides financial assistance to increase access to treatment and recovery resources for individuals in need. These grants can help to cover the cost of treatment, recovery housing, transportation, early intervention efforts, peer services, and more. In 2021, ARCHway release over $57,000 in grants, and our goal is to release $70,000 in 2022, so that funding is not a barrier to long-term recovery from the individuals and families impacted.

ARCHway Institute does not provide direct medical treatment, nor do we provide recovery housing. This is a strategic move by the ARCHway Institute to ensure the unbiased intentions of the organization. Our goals are simple: education about the disease and helping individuals and families get the information and professional assistance they need.

ARCHway Institute has a very diverse Board of Directors and staff who understand the needs of the recovery community. Our Board and staff are comprised of several individuals in recovery, several individuals that are caregivers for a loved one with a substance use disorder (SUD), individuals from the criminal justice system, medical doctors, counselors, and clergy. ARCHway Institute balances an understanding of SUD personally and professionally while leveraging this knowledge to meet our goals.

ARCHway institute has teams of staff and/or volunteers that currently work in 7 different states to support our mission. Each year we look towards adding teams in additional communities and additional states. These teams work in the local communities by participating in the Drug-Free Coalitions, running educational events, running fundraising events, and helping individuals and families find the information and resources they need through our Advocates for HOPE Program.

ARCHway is also very active using social media and newsletters to drive our messaging. This includes:

ARCHway Institute will celebrate its 10 year anniversary in 2022. Over those 10 years, ARCHway Institute has seen steady growth in our metrics -- from followers, donations received, grants released, and number of communities impacted by our messaging.

The metrics of growth in 2021 for the ARCHway Institute were:

- In 2021, ARCHway reached 10,000+ people through our education and awareness efforts.
- In 2021, ARCHway responded to 105 requests for assistance (financial, treatment, housing, peer support, etc.) through our Advocates for HOPE Program. This is a 31% increase from 2020.
- In 2021, ARCHway awarded $57,218 grants to increase access to treatment and recovery resources across the country, a 14% increase from 2020.
- In 2021, ARCHway generated just under $395,000, a 32% increase from 2020. This included a one-time, generous donation through our Legacy of HOPE Program (planned giving / estate planing) that significantly increased our funds raised.
- In 2021, ARCHway added 16 new HOPE Fund Sponsors bringing our total to 76. In 2021, ARCHway brought in $215,000 in donation to the ARCHway HOPE Fund to increase access to treatment and recovery resources for those in need.
- ARCHway launched its Legacy of HOPE Program in late 2020, and now we have 60 people committed. This is an estimated $944,475 in pledges.

In the non-profit fundraising arena, analysis of the prior year's giving is the BEST predictor of the future year's giving. Based on the continued growth in funds raised each year, and the amazing generosity of the ARCHway community, ARCHway is well-positioned to achieve the 2022 budget revenue target of $375,000.

  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
