Description

The “Fight Opioid Addiction and Overdose with Medical Cannabis Project” Steering Committee members will gather January 27, 2018 at The Wright Room at the Appaloosa Grill in Denver Colorado to coordinate the launch and opening of the Dare To Care Total Health Care™ model at La Clinica, located in Gardner, Colorado.The Steering Committee is composed of medical, clinical and scientific PhD doctors, nurses, investors, government officials, lobbyists, professionals and entrepreneurs who have come together with a combined passion to combat the opioid epidemic currently plaguing America.

Dare To Care THC™ at La Clinica will be the first of many Cannabinoid medicine based clinics offering opioid-dependent patients a free comprehensive solution to addiction and focuses on the development of community health clinics serving both the needs in rural and urban areas. The program is supervised by Dr. Uma Dhanabalan MD MPH FAAFP and will incorporate her Total Health Care™ model of “Educate, Embrace, and Empower,” providing comprehensive compassionate care, counseling, support and education to patients. Cannabis is the "Exit Drug” from pharmaceuticals, harmful street drugs, and alcohol addiction. The Steering Committee presentation will conclude with a personal input and Q&A session ending at 2:00pm MST. An update on the progress with the Huerfano County Faris Green Campus will also be delivered by Sam Faris and CEO Travis Nelson.

*Group and media photos can be taken from 2:00pm -2:30pm MST.

Dare to Care THC™ at La Clinica will host a fundraiser/networking event following the committee meeting 2:30pm MST. The event will include musical performances, refreshments and amazing guest speakers Dr. Uma Dhanabalan MD MPH FAAFP and CEO Travis Nelson.

Admission for the public (age 21+) fundraiser/networking event will consist of a $25 donation or purchase of 50 turquoise fundraiser bracelets labeled "Helping End The Opioid Epidemic” with a $100 donation to La Clinica. Money raised will be used to repair and establish La Clinica as a fully functional community health clinic staffed with a physician by April 2018 for a full calendar year. The primary focus of the clinic will be helping to end the opioid epidemic.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, opioid prescription and addiction overdoses have killed more than 64,000 Americans in the 12 months ending last January alone, a 21% increase over the previous year. These numbers are equivalent to the combined amount of Americans that lost their lives in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan combined. With these alarming statics depicting the current climate of the opioid addiction and overdose epidemic, it is due time we generate viable solutions to curtail the destruction and harm on society.

Recent studies indicate that in areas with access to medical cannabis; rates of narcotic use, addiction, and overdose decrease by approximately 25%. This translates to thousands of lives that can potentially be saved through Dr. Dhanabalan’s Dare To Care THC Model at La Clinica.
