Our Mission

The goal of this joint initiative of Restaurant Opportunities Center and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General is to connect individuals suffering from substance use disorder with treatment options – with a focus on supporting restaurant workers and their families. By sharing stories, resources, and support, we hope to build awareness of substance use disorder and strengthen support networks for workers, families and communities.

Substance abuse disorder particularly affects workers in the restaurant community – The 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found the highest rate of substance use among workers in accommodations and food services industry compared to other industries: 19% of workers had engaged in illicit drug use during the past month.

Substance abuse disorder is one of our greatest public health challenges—by sharing stories and providing support to people affected in our community we can come together to address this challenge.
