The Gene Duffy Foundation
The purpose of the Gene Duffy Foundation is to promote education and research about drug and alcohol addiction and to provide assistance for the treatment of these addictions.
Our vision for the Gene Duffy Foundation is to provide initiatives that address alcoholism and substance abuse issues while providing greater access to high quality, effective treatment for people already in the grips of alcoholism and/or substance abuse. The three major areas of focus are:
The Education initiative within the Gene Duffy Foundation is focused on building awareness and overcoming stigma through Community Education and by supporting the treatment industry through the provision of college scholarships for those who are training as clinicians.
Providing financial assistance for those in need of treatment who are financially challenged but have a reasonable support structure available post-treatment to improve their chance of long-term successful recovery and who will enter a residential treatment program with the same 12-step philosophy that Gene Duffy embraced and taught.
Funding research projects for alcoholism and addiction and developing a community of professionals who can share best practices in addiction treatment.
