We are a foundation that works to encourage best practices and efficient, business-like work in the prevention, intervention, and recovery fight against the opioid crisis.
Chase Loveless died of opioid overdose January 22, 2014. He was a tall, strong, smart young man with great potential. His parents gave the impetus and energy to start the Palmetto Foundation for Prevention and Recovery. This is a grassroots group of ordinary citizens.
The Palmetto Foundation for Prevention and Recovery Board appointed Bruce Loveless as President; Lee Macilwinen as Vice President, Bill Pruett as Treasurer, and Martine Helou as Secretary. We also hired Martine Helou as our Executive Director.
