About

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”small” position=”center” border_style=”dotted” up=”17″ down=”15″][vc_column_text]

Rat Park is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is leading a social recovery movement and fighting the stigma associated with substance dependency. Rat Park’s mission is to create environments that promote healthy connections and provide proper education about mental health.Through lively social events and gatherings, we will bring the community together to create real face-to-face connections and use the funds raised from events for grants that will help individuals struggling with mental health issues and substance dependence get treatment.

IT’S TIME FOR CHANGE

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent” up=”20″ down=”0″][vc_column_text]

-The truth is, there is no single face to addition, it impacts us all. 

 

Together, we must change the conversation. We must stop shaming and isolating people suffering from this chronic disease of the brain.

 

It’s time to treat this illness with urgency and compassion.
