As a volunteer at the peer run non-profit for 12 years, i have seen the miracle of successful recovery from serious mental illness and from substance abuse. I have seen many others go to state hospital, the streets, and frequently to death.Many lives will be transformed into productive citizenship through the GAP and ARTS delivery system advocated by COMPASS. Other volunteers and I provide companionship, support and hope and life planning to several hundred people a year, but they can only recover if they have the essential services required for them to make it. Many individuals and their loved ones will be saved, and so will huge costs in hospital and jail costs.. There will be a huge Return on this investment.
