C4 – a 501(c)(3) non-profit Public Charity is dedicated to the premise that society’s path to achieving improved access, quality, and integrity of behavioral health and substance use disorder treatment is through education, shared knowledge, and rigorous research.
For almost three decades, C4's core mission has been focused on being the “go-to” resource for stakeholders who require relevant knowledge, education, advice, and training. C4 is working to enhance and expand the benefits of access to its services by the broad community of stakeholders.
The mission of C4 Recovery Foundation, Inc., (a non-profit organization) is to deliver the best knowledge and education resources to treatment providers, policy makers, healthcare systems and other stakeholders so they can align, improve and integrate policy and practice to best serve the needs of patients, families and communities as they confront the difficulties of recovery from substance use disorder and behavioral health issues. C4 seeks to continuously provide financial, clinical and social resources to increasingly complex societal problems.
- C4 is dedicated to the premise that we all benefit when the burdens created by substance use disorders and behavioral health issues are effectively addressed. Furthermore:
- We believe that all stakeholders must collaborate, use current knowledge, and dedicate themselves to the needs of patients, families, and communities, and that this can only occur when accurate, complete, and rigorous knowledge is easily accessed and effectively conveyed.
- We believe that substance use disorders and behavioral health issues represent a fundamental challenge and threat to the integrity and security of society and the ability of individuals and their families to lead productive and rewarding lives. Further, that the scale and scope of the issue is becoming so pervasive and global that it constitutes a national security risk and potentially a generational crisis.
- Therefore, we believe that all communities must have an ability to respond to the needs of their citizens impacted by substance use disorders and behavioral health issues.
