Ways To Support

“In conjunction with traditional methods of treatment, Peer
Support is the most innovative approach to helping adults
overcome addiction I have ever seen. Their program works
and that is why I support them.”

Be part of EqualSRQ’s recovery mission and support vital recovery work for people in Sarasota seeking recovery today. As a first-of-its-kind organization in Sarasota, EqualSRQ believes that chronic diseases like addiction require free access to on-demand, long-term resources. Although traditional methods of treatment are vital and complementary to EqualSRQ, people suffering from substance use disorder will face significant challenges and obstacles well beyond a 30, 60, or 90-day medical intervention.

  • Although Florida saw a huge spike in drug overdoses
    over the last year (according to data from the CDC).
  • And Florida ranks at number 18 for alcohol dependency
    and drug abuse.

Despite that, Florida ranks 25th in mental health access,
indicating that adults have higher prevalence of mental
illness and lower rates of access to care.


We need you to help us change that!

  2. Expand our network of housing, employment, and physical and mental health resources
  3. Fund safe, drug and alcohol-free activities for clients
  4. Expand staffing resources, which, in turn, allows EqualSRQ to further grow its mission and impact in the
    direction of employment support and support for veterans.
