Since 2011, our foundation has helped over 300 individuals and families navigate the difficult business of recovery.  Key members have vetted treatment facilities, helped connect clients to the right program, and walked the walk for over 25 years.  We are ready to help you and your family with guidance, understanding, & even scholarships when available. 


Our Mission

The N.O.W. Matters More Foundation champions creative efforts and solutions for prevention, education, and treatment of substance abuse and the disease of addiction.

We use relevant and effective images, discussions, and entertainment via print, Internet, radio, television, film, conference, and personal appearances to promote awareness, understanding, reduce the stigma, and inspire action.

There are many treatment solutions available and we encourage anyone suffering to get help NOW regardless of the barriers.  We help individuals and families navigate the difficult business of recovery by vetting programs and helping them with options of those that best meets their treatment needs.  We provide partial or full scholarships when necessary and available.  We promote multiple events every year for this very purpose and are grateful to the programs and individuals that help with this very necessary component of our foundation.  Unfortunately many people suffering with addiction are under insured, have limited benefits, or have no insurance at all.    

NOW matters more because your tomorrow depends on it.
