The Leigh Leckerman Foundation

Help Us Help Others
A Lifeline to Drug & Alcohol Recovery

Chances are, you know someone who has a substance use disease (SUD), whether drugs or alcohol, or both. Whether a family member, a friend, coworker, someone at the club or team or member of  your church, everyone today seems to know someone who struggles with addiction. The entire community benefits when someone with an SUD finds treatment and experiences the rewards of a fulfilling life in recovery. That’s where we come in…

The Leigh Leckerman Foundation was created to honor the memory of a lovely young woman who lost her life to alcohol.  It is dedicated to helping others take the first step to recovery at any of our partner drug & alcohol addiction treatment facilities, on the east coast or across the country.

The Foundation provides financial support and admissions assistance to emergency detox and rehab facilities for individuals. We also support inpatient/outpatient treatment plans, post recovery housing assistance, extended treatment plans and other assistance, available on a patient-by-patient basis.

Since 2013, Leigh’s Foundation has helped hundreds of patients gain emergency admittance to treatment centers, approximately 85% of patients completing rehabilitation successfully. We have brought meaning to Leigh’s tragedy and distributed in excess of $350,000 to help individuals on the road to recovery and new lives. With your help, we can continue to make a difference.
