PROVIDING NEEDS-BASED SOBER HOUSE SCHOLARSHIPS IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL DALTON

WHO WE ARE

The Think Of Michael Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2018 by the Dalton family in memory of Michael Dalton, who tragically died at the age of 39 of an accidental opioid overdose on January 13, 2018 while in outpatient treatment. From the day Michael passed away, we knew our lives would never be the same and we'd be forever changed. Michael will be remembered as an intelligent, compassionate, generous and very athletic, competitive person. He was a fun-loving father to his then 5 year-old son Mason, who he referred to as the center of his universe. Michael was a loving and devoted son to Richard and Carmela and the always protective brother and best friend to Stacey and Jamie. Soon after Michael's unexpected death, we decided as a family that we wanted to turn our grief in to something positive and create necessary change. Our goal from the beginning has been to make significant and lasting differences fighting this devastating epidemic. Helping other individuals and families struggling with this disease has become our family's purpose.

      

"Our goal for The Think Of Michael Foundation is simple; to prevent as many other families as possible from experiencing the unimaginable pain and loss that we have. We plan on impacting, changing and saving every life we touch along the way!"


To help accomplish this, we raise funds to be able to offer needs-based sober house scholarships for people after they successfully complete a treatment program and are then referred to us by a clinician in our growing network of treatment providers and facilities.


Sober housing is a critical component of many people's long journey toward achieving long-term sobriety. Unfortunately, it is NOT covered at all by insurance!


The Think Of Michael Foundation not only provides sober house placement and scholarships, but we also provide access to our expansive network of local recovery resources. This allows us to ensure that recipients are put in the absolute best possible situations to meet their individual recovery goals and needs, providing them the best possible chances of long-term sustained recovery. Some of the assistance we offer includes connecting recipients with recovery coaches, peer support groups, local NA/AA groups, educational resources, continued treatment and therapies, yoga, mindfulness training, family support, 12-Step Programs, sponsorship and Smart Recovery. We do anything in our power to make a recipient's transition as smooth as possible and assist them in building a solid foundation for their success in early recovery.
