WHAT WE DO

Pedal4Life engages those recovering from opiate and other substance addictions in experiencing the physical, social, and emotional benefits of recreational bicycling.

We do this by inviting veterans, who have already used bicycling to help them succeed with their own recovery, to mentor and inspire civilians in drug treatment facilities. Our programs help family members to rebuild trust, love, and support with their loved ones coping with addiction.

WHY WE DO IT

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) nearly 21.2 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with a Substance Use Disorder (SUD). More than 1.2 million of them are veterans.

About 2.1 SUD’s are related to prescription opioid pain medications with an estimated 467,000 addicted to heroin.

The smallest number is the scariest. Drug treatment centers in the U.S. have the capacity to treat only 20% of those who need help.

Helping those in recovery to avoid relapse is imperative to keeping treatment center beds available for new patients. That could be someone you love, or someone you know who loves someone at risk. You can help!
