In the United States there are currently 46.3 million people suffering from a substance abuse disorder, with only 10% of that number having access to care. Even with insurance, few providers cover more than 6 weeks of treatment. The current 30-day treatment model is statistically proven to be ineffective. The relapse rate decreases from 60% to 17% or less with a long-term treatment model. We envision a world where every person struggling with substance abuse can access long-term treatment.

The Blackburn Foundation was created to provide up to 12 months of the best addiction and mental health treatment. Founded by addiction field veteran Robert Patrick, with a cutting-edge team of experts, the Blackburn Foundation relies on a 12-month step-down continuum of care recovery protocol.

Built on the principle that access to care is a basic human right, our scholarship program aims to break the cycle of addiction and empower individuals on their journey towards lasting recovery. Together we can make a difference and provide the resources necessary for change.


Whether you're seeking help for yourself or a loved one, looking to volunteer, or considering a donation, your involvement can make a difference in the lives we touch. 


By 2028, we plan to open a Blackburn Foundation campus in West Los Angeles on over 20,000 sq ft of land. This state-of-the-art facility will incorporate addiction, spiritual, nutritional, professional, and wellness-driven services in wide open, inspiring spaces. The Blackburn recovery campus will be a transformational resourse for our community. Our vision is to replicate this model in all major cities across the country. Stay tuned for more exciting developments.
