TARS was created from my porch, on the tiny island of Isla Mujeres. I am lucky enough to live on this beautiful island with my family and partake in a most relaxed lifestyle. I have always lived in small, isolated communities and have grown to expect that if a service is needed.....we most likely do not have it. That, or you are on a waiting list for months or have to travel lengthy distances to receive said services. For years I have been curious about addiction and mental health, and have made it my focus to create a better understanding of both topics in my family and my community.
I have been equally blessed and challenged for over 12 years by my best pal who lives the daily addiction struggle. We have been through treatment multiple times, strokes, overdoses, tears from hell, kidnappings, sober streaks, adventures....you name it. I've had to be persistent to the point of probably appearing like a total LOON just to ensure he gets the resources needed to fight this addiction. There just has to be a better way in not only rural communities, but all communities to support those struggling and in recovery.....
TARS or Technology Assisted Recovery System, was designed in response to this disconnect between communities and traditional treatment centers, and those battling with addiction and recovery. TARS supports those waiting to enter treatment, those who have recently completed a program, and those who just want to remain a level of accountability in their journey towards sobriety. TARS provides a concise list of emergency resources, educational material, videos, and motivational messages. It allows communication and support from peers, suggests daily participation, and facilitates an ongoing connection after exiting or prior to entering a program.
