After raising over $1.2 million during his crowdless Beacon Jams run, Trey Anastasio has shared new images of his forthcoming non-profit substance use disorder treatment center in Ludlow, Vt.
The center is being spearheaded by the Divided Sky Foundation, which Anastasio founded last year, and it hopes to help combat Vermont’s skyrocketing overdose rates. (Vermont currently ranks 11th in U.S. overdoses, but has just four state-certified residential treatment facilities for substance use disorder.)
Reads a statement from the Divided Sky Foundation, “We are thrilled to share a few photos from Trey and future Clinical Director Melanie Gulde’s recent visit to the Divided Sky Foundation’s new home in beautiful Ludlow, VT. The building will house a non-profit substance use disorder treatment center that will be dedicated to delivering quality care and compassionate treatment to those affected by alcoholism and addiction. We would like to thank everyone for the continued support we’ve received as we work towards opening the facility, and especially would like to send our gratitude to all of our local supporters in Ludlow, VT.”
“Like so many people in America and so many in Vermont, I became addicted to opiates,” Anastasio, who is 14 years sober, previously said. “I was extremely lucky to have access to care, and I know how important it is to be part of a recovery community. I’m grateful that we can help provide that opportunity for others.”
