Peers for Alcohol-Associated Liver Survival -- PALS
Empower individuals diagnosed with alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD) by building an individual’s capacity to find and follow their unique alcohol recovery pathway. We will accomplish this mission by providing tools, including nationwide peer group and mentor support, education, and resources, paralleled with campaigns aimed to eradicate the stigma associated with liver disease.
Drastically decrease excessive drinking in this country and eliminate the stigma associated with alcohol use disorder and all liver diseases.
No human diagnosed with alcohol-associated liver disease should have to walk this complex journey alone. PALS aims to provide a safe haven, engaging and empowering people to activate their agency, by developing their alcohol recovery pathway through peer group and mentor support, education, and external resources. Additionally, through the support of PALS’ Whole Health Advisory Council, we will actively ensure medical providers, health associations, and communities have the latest alcohol use disorder (AUD) and ALD information on early detection, treatment, and patient and care partner support options.
