Summary: The rate of deaths due to accidental overdose is on the rise. Recovery is possible but isolation and stigma have blocked the way. BigVision NYC is a safe ‘virtual’ and in person haven to help young people gain the support and companionship they need.
BIGVISION was founded in January 2015, by Eve Goldberg, a year after her 23-year-old son, Isaac, died of an accidental drug overdose. She was motivated to do something to help young adults in recovery in New York City learn to live fun, meaningful, sober lives.
Eve is part of a wonderful family business operating in New York for over 50 years. She has now committed to making BIGVISION a reality by creating entertaining, engaging events and building a community where the BIGVISION and their family, can enjoy themselves in a cool, hip, substance-free environment.
BIGVISION today has a strong board of directors, advisory board, staff and friends that help BIGVISION meet its goal of helping those in recovery. For those want to join the BIGVISION community, donate, or support and create events go to www.bigvision.nyc.
