1 St. Jude s Recovery Center, Inc. Comprehensive Addiction Treatment Services Restoring Lives, Serving Atlanta The $5 Million Campaign for St. Jude s Recovery Center, Inc.

2 Belinda, s Story O n August 27, 2012, I was drunk, high, homeless, estranged from my children, hopeless, broken, and empty. I was overwhelmed with the feeling of death. I didn t have a good upbringing; I was abused, molested, and neglected. Needless to say, I continued to abuse myself for 29 years. I gradually progressed into a lifeless, dark, empty, and selfish human being. I neglected my children, lied, cheated, stole, and was not dependable. Most of all, I didn t care. On August 28, 2012, I entered detox at St. Jude s Recovery Center. I wanted to live, I did not want to die in the streets, and I wanted to see my first grandchild born. One year later Belinda was clean, sober, and living in her own home. She reclaimed her life. I am employed with a company that has management opportunities. I have goals and dreams. My children are proud of me. I am loved and supported. I am filled with joy. I am experiencing daily growth and blessings. I love my new way of life. Treatment is effective, people can and do recover.

3 St. Jude, s Recovery Center believes in endless hope. Hope that people choose recovery, hope that families reunite, hope that lives will be restored, and hope that communities will thrive. For more than 50 years, St. Jude s Recovery Center has been helping individuals rebuild their lives. A leader in the treatment of addictive disease and co-occurring mental health disorders, St. Jude s provides critical care to individuals in Atlanta fighting addiction and homelessness. It is one of the few treatment centers in the state of Georgia that provides a full continuum of care. Open to anyone in greater Atlanta seeking treatment, St. Jude s serves more than 1,300 individuals per year: homeless or low-income men, women, veterans, and families with children who do not have private insurance and/or cannot afford to pay for treatment. Their common thread is the disease of addiction. With a mission to provide a comprehensive system of care that sustains long-term recovery from addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders, St. Jude s offerings include detoxification, residential and day treatment services, halfway housing, and permanent housing. More than 75% of St. Jude s total work directly relates to homeless persons which illustrates the dramatic impact that the organization has on the community. In order to maintain high client success rates, improve health services, and increase outpatient capacity, St. Jude s Recovery Center has publicly launched a $5 million capital campaign, Restoring Lives, Serving Atlanta, which will fund the purchase of land, construction of a healthcare center, and the renovation of seven existing facilities. St. Jude s evidence-based treatment approaches are proven to be effective, as evidenced by the following outcomes: 90% 74% 76% 98% of clients remain free of drug and alcohol use during treatment. of clients exiting treatment move into permanent housing. of clients entering St. Jude s job readiness program become employed. of clients maintained or improved their health status while in treatment.

4 St. Jude, s is helping to reduce chronic homelessness, unemployment, drug related crime, and incarceration. The Cost of Addiction Two of the most pervasive and costly challenges faced today are alcohol and drug addiction. According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the economic cost of addiction in the United States, which includes healthcare, crime, and loss in productivity, is estimated to exceed half a trillion dollars. Recent scientific advances have revolutionized the understanding of drug and alcohol addiction, which is now recognized as a chronic relapsing brain disease. St. Jude s is saving lives because untreated addiction leads to almost certain death. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the rates of dependence and unmet need in Georgia are higher than the national average in those 26 and older. Nearly two million Georgians suffered from addictive disease and/ or mental illness in the past year. St. Jude s Recovery Center continues to be a leader in alcohol and drug treatment.

5 From Humble Beginnings to a Leader in Addiction Treatment St. Jude s Recovery Center was founded in 1962 by downtown business leaders, municipal court judges, and two innercity churches, All Saints and St. Luke s, to address the problem of chronic alcoholic court offenders. St. Jude s purchased its first facility in 1963, and since that time the organization has increased the number of facilities it owns and operates in Atlanta from one to seven all while operating with a balanced budget and remaining debt-free. St. Jude s attributes its longevity and success to strong business practices and fiscal management. St. Jude s strength lies in its ability to adapt to the changing needs of the community and the individuals it serves. The organization provides specific programs and services such as: Intake and assessments Treatment planning Addiction and mental health treatment Life skills training Health and nutrition education Job readiness Medication management Individual and group counseling 12-step education and groups Parenting education Continuing care Family and children services St. Jude, s Renaissance Parkway Campus is located in the heart of where the greatest need exists.

6 Restoring Lives, Serving Atlanta The $5 Million Campaign for St. Jude s Recovery Center, Inc. It is an exciting time for St. Jude s Recovery Center, as the organization prepares to expand its services to make an even greater impact in the Atlanta community. Funding priorities for the $5 million campaign support two key objectives of the organization s Strategic Plan: Integrate primary healthcare, addiction treatment, and psychiatric services for St. Jude s clients and other members of the community by purchasing land and constructing a healthcare center. Enhance the long-term financial viability of the organization by preserving St. Jude s largest capital assets through renovation of its seven facilities. Individuals living with a substance abuse disorder often have one or more physical health problems such as lung disease, hepatitis, HIV/ AIDS, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Research strongly indicates that persons with substance abuse disorders have nine times greater risk of congestive heart failure, 12 times greater risk of liver cirrhosis, and 12 times the risk of developing pneumonia. St. Jude s Healthcare Center - $2,000,000 Within St. Jude s Service Center, which also serves as the organization s main administrative building, all clients are provided healthcare services that include physical assessments, health and nutrition education, and medication monitoring. This care is supplemented by primary medical services such as pharmaceutical and preventive care by the Saint Joseph s Mercy Care mobile unit. Client needs have now outpaced the capacity of this mobile unit, which visits St. Jude s one day per week. In the interest of securing an ideal location for the construction of a healthcare center at the best possible price, St. Jude s Board of Directors authorized the $500,000 purchase of one-third of an acre of land adjacent to the Renaissance Parkway campus. With limited land available for purchase in the area, this rare and unique opportunity was simply too compelling not to pursue. A total of $500,000 has been built into the campaign in order to fully replenish reserves that were used for the land acquisition.

7 care can be more effective and result in better outcomes than On this property, St. Jude s will construct a twostory, 8,000 square foot stand-alone Healthcare Center. St. Jude s will maintain full ownership of the Center. The organization has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the highly respected and well-established professional healthcare provider, Saint Joseph s Mercy Care, to operate a health clinic in approximately one-quarter of the Center. This unique partnership is significant because it will allow Mercy Care to reach a population that it does not currently serve. In order to meet these increased client and community needs, St. Jude s expects the clinic to be open and operational up to five days a week, with priority service and appointments available to St. Jude s clients. The increased efficiency of a fixed-site clinical setting will allow for more robust services, which include lab tests and medication supply and formulary. A new building dedicated exclusively to healthcare services will provide the outpatient space to serve an additional 600 individuals per year, greatly benefitting the population we serve. Relocating St. Jude s admissions and healthcare services from its current home in the St. Jude s Service Center into the new building will also allow the organization to increase the capacity of core outpatient offerings such as day treatment services, family services, and continuing care. The broader community is also in need of additional medical care. St. Jude s Healthcare Center will relieve the burden of nearby emergency rooms. Creating a comprehensive system of care on St. Jude s campus will allow for the provision of significantly improved and expanded healthcare services for the vulnerable, uninsured, and underserved population that lacks the benefit of affordable healthcare options. This will also become the medical home for St. Jude s clients after they leave treatment. Clinical trials have demonstrated that when someone has a substance abuse problem and one or more physical health problems, integrated separate primary care and substance abuse programs.

8 Renovation of Facilities $3,000,000 St. Jude s Restoring Lives, Serving Atlanta capital campaign includes funding to renovate the organization s seven facilities in greater Atlanta, which range in age from 20 to almost 100 years old. Because St. Jude s programs operate 24 hours a day and seven days a week, all of the facilities are worn from decades of heavy use and need repairs and upgrading. It is imperative that St. Jude s Recovery Center renovate its facilities now to improve the client experience and create a safe, uplifting, and efficient environment. A setting that is conducive to recovery will help to encourage and support the process and improve the aesthetic appeal of the neighborhood. St. Jude s recently renovated its veterans halfway house using a $200,000 capital campaign grant from The Home Depot Foundation. The remaining six facilities, four of which are located on the Renaissance Parkway campus, require extensive interior and exterior improvements, structural and cosmetic.

9 As St. Jude, s continues to grow to meet the needs of the community, it is seeking support from the community to help rebuild lives and reunite families. Due to the volume of necessary repairs and improvements, the six renovation projects that remain will begin immediately when funds are available. St. Jude s is prepared to move swiftly to complete all capital improvement projects in the interest of its clients, and to benefit the greater Atlanta community. Properties and their required renovations include but are not limited to: Detoxification Unit: New roof, gutters, HVAC system, flooring, and renovation of the ground floor bathrooms. Women s Long-Term Residential Facility: Repairs to the roof and façade, replace sprinkler heads, kitchen renovations, and plumbing upgrades. Family Care Center: Drywall repair, bathroom renovations, new flooring and paint, and HVAC system upgrades. Halfway House: Structural, trim, and gutter repairs as well as new flooring and drywall, kitchen and bathroom renovations, and the replacement of window air conditioning units. St. Jude s Service Center: New roof, gutters, downspouts, and the siding replaced; the renovation of all bathrooms and the replacement of light fixtures, flooring and plumbing; and HVAC system upgrades. Men s Long-Term Residential Facility: Replacement of all windows and balcony doors, refurbishment of balconies, and sealing the building s façade; renovation of the kitchen and all bathrooms, repair and re-level first floor landing, new flooring and paint throughout, and upgrades to improve the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems.

10 Restoring Lives, Serving Atlanta The $5 Million Campaign for St. Jude s Recovery Center, Inc. Dear Friends, We ask for your support by considering a gift to St. Jude s Recovery Center s Capital Campaign. St. Jude s has been restoring lives and serving Atlanta for more than 50 years. What began as a desire among community leaders to offer help and hope to individuals and families suffering from addiction has grown into an organization that offers a full continuum of treatment and care for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders to its homeless and low-income clients. Belinda s Story demonstrates the extraordinary difference that St. Jude s makes in the lives of those it serves. There are many more stories like Belinda s which exemplify both the community s need for St. Jude s programs and services as well as the organization s profound and lasting impact. As we look to the future, the quality of care for our clients continues to be our primary concern. The construction of St. Jude s Healthcare Center on our Renaissance Parkway campus will increase the availability of healthcare services and improve the overall recovery process through integrated healthcare. The renovation of our facilities will guarantee current and future St. Jude s clients the same hopeful setting for recovery that makes success stories like Belinda s possible. It was community support that opened St. Jude s doors in 1962, and community support has kept them open ever since. With your support at this time, St. Jude s Recovery Center will continue restoring lives and serving Atlanta for many years to come. Sincerely, S. Bryan Benedict Douglas F. Reid Suzanne Shaffer S.
