In late 2011, Stacie provided seed funding to the Nevada Recovery and Prevention community at the University of Nevada, Reno. This simple act of generosity sparked a national study into the status of substance use disorders and recovery among college students, and to the formation of the 501(c) (3) nonprofit Transforming Youth Recovery (TYR). The study was used to spearhead the establishing of 100 new collegiate recovery programs across the country. TYR is now a recognized leader in the national recovery movement, working to develop an effective prevention and intervention model and system of care, based on evidence-based research, that can be shared and replicated in other communities across the country.
Our vision is to transform youth recovery—one community, one school, one student at a time.
