Our History, Our Why

WakeUp Carolina is a community-based movement born out of one family’s heartbreaking loss of their son, Creighton, in the summer of 2016. Creighton’s family made a promise and a commitment to share their story in hopes no one would feel alone.

Our Community United

We are a recovery community organization (RCO), an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of our local recovery community.
