Stop and Surrender is a spiritual community-based Drug & Alcohol Program which has been offering services to individuals affected with the disease of addiction since 1992. Stop And Surrender, Inc. develops an annual report on recovery and services that receive funds from the Community Behavioral Health (CBH), BHSI, and as a requirement of the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The requirement directs the Stop And Surrender, Inc. to prepare an annual report on services and demographic data. Data in this report represents all adults that were identified with a diagnosis of substance abuse/dependence during July 2016 - June 2017, or reported an alcohol/drug related treatment concern at admission to the Stop And Surrender, Inc. Recovery Center.
During the fiscal year 2016-2017 Stop & Surrender, Inc. continued working with community advocates addressing substance abuse, alcoholism and homelessness that have impacted our neighborhoods and communities. Stop & Surrender, Inc. has worked diligently to improve its relationship with the recovering community and agencies such as Deliverance Evangelistic Church, COMHAR, Inc., Empowerment Resources Associates, Black Women Health Alliance, Fairmount Treatment, North Philadelphia Health Systems, SW NuStop, Guadenzia, Divine Light, Juniata Community Mental Health, Quality Health Care, the Consortium, JEVS, the Philadelphia Court System and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, just to name a few. These agencies strongly support Stop & Surrender, Inc.'s mission and make referrals to our program on a regular basis. We also work with the Office of Addiction Services (OAS) in an effort to address the underserved and those individuals in crisis seeking treatment and recovery.
