Sun Street Centers in King City is a non-profit organization that offers a residential treatment program for men and women experiencing addiction. Their mission is to prevent alcohol and drug addiction by providing resources to individuals and families despite their income level. The main issue was that Spanish-speaking clients and clients that are non-residents of Monterey County were in need of resources to guide them during their recovery process. The idea for this project is to provide resources to all residential clients in both English and Spanish and also offer them to clients who are non-residents of Monterey County. The resource binder will provide resources at a glance for all clients that come into Sun Street Centers despite their residential status and will be offered in two languages. The resource binder was an opportunity to gather a great amount of valuable information in one binder and give residents the opportunity to use it during the program, after completion of the program, or in case of a relapse. My hope is to spread awareness that addiction is not by choice, addiction is the inability to cope with life.
