The mission of the Davis Direction Foundation is to serve as a role model in our community in order to become a national resource for Opiate/Heroin Addiction awareness and change. We will strive to remove the outdated stigma of opiate addicts and innovatively revamp the rehabilitation process to appropriately address the disease of Opiate/Heroin Addiction as one of the most severe forms of addiction. We will provide direct assistance and services to individuals, family members, or others at risk of experiencing an opioid related overdose including, but not limited to, providing opioid antagonists.

The proceeds from the event will go toward opening a recovery clubhouse named “The Zone” to support long-term recovery and re-entry into the community. The Zone will be the first of its kind in Cobb County and will provide a necessary service to support our citizens working hard to maintain their recovery from drug addiction.
