“It was great meeting you all to talk about how we tackle the issue of addiction in the State of Wisconsin through legislation, what the Fox Cities Community can do, and what we can do to help prevent addiction through education of the next generation. I look forward to working with you passionate advocates, community leaders, and with legislators from both sides of the aisle to help address these important issues!”
Dear Mr. Alvarado,
I wanted to take this time to congratulate you for the awesome success Rise Together has had.
First, I want to thank you for all your hard work and dedication that you and your team put forth into establishing Rise Together. Rise Together is an amazing community group that addresses the issues of substance misuse and heroin addiction head on, which is something highly needed within our local Fox Cities Community and state. Congratulations on becoming a program of the national Young People in Recovery organization! This is something Rise Together truly deserves and will bring so much strength and positive influence to.
The straight-talk school presentations you and your team give sound incredible. With addiction as such a massive problem, especially in our local community, having advocacy groups like Rise Together, who truly understands the problems of addiction and abuse, make building awareness and recovery support so much more understandable and possible. I am sure it takes courage to do what you guys have done and to share your stories. I cannot thank you enough for what you do through Rise Together for our local communities, state of Wisconsin, and now on the national level. Building awareness is the first step to overcoming the issue. The individuals you touch through your presentations and work to provide education, treatment, housing, and employment opportunities is incredible. Thank you for being such great members of our local community and for not being afraid to combat this major issue head on. You are truly making our community a better place to live!
Congratulations again and thank you for all you do! Keep up the great work! As always, do not hesitate to contact me with any comments, questions, or concerns you may have pertaining to state or local legislation. I will look forward to hearing from you!
