And now, two years later, we have a few solutions for you. Our first one to come along was the 'Clean Green Room' project. With it we started offering free transporation to meetings for folks just passing through our hometown of Detroit. The next exciting step for us was to begin hosting artists such as Lol Tolhurst (The Cure) and Brett Nelson (Built To Spill) to perform and share their struggles with addiction and recovery. Our ongoing goal has been to establish ourselves within our community alongside a message of hope and support.
This next year, we hope to extend our reach by providing resources for those beyond Detroit. We recently launched Compass - an interactive national meeting database and finder tool for major metropolitan areas. The Compass database currently contains over 4,000 meetings spanning multiple cities across the countries. Our database is not exclusive to AA or NA, and includes locations for buddhist recovery (Refuge) and mental health support (NAMI).
And if we can't help you find a meeting, we can at the very least provide you with online resources. We maintain a regularly updated page of videos and articles pertaining to recovery and mindfulness - all readily available for download or streaming.
Finding time to talk about anxiety, addiciton, and mental health in general is imperative to staying safe and sane on the road. We at Passenger want to keep that dialogue open and evolving.
