I founded Same Road in 2022 after losing my younger sister, Simran, to suicide. She had been fighting mental health and substance abuse issues and was in a sober living facility when we lost her.
After she passed away, I felt like I had failed her. I felt like the support we gave her just wasn't good enough. The more frustrated I got, the more I looked into treatment for addiction, and the more I saw the cracks in the system there is now. Simply put, there aren't enough treatment options, the treatment options that are out there often aren't effective, and even when they are, they may be completely unaffordable to the people that need them.
Finding the right place to detox, to receive treatment, to go through sober living—all those things are effectively on a "you have to know somebody" basis. Unless you or somebody you know knows the system, it's incredibly difficult to find treatment.
This is what Same Road was formed to fix. While everybody's journey with mental health and addiction is different, once they want to seek out help, all roads should lead to effective, affordable, accessible treatment.
