“The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But...the good Samaritan reversed

the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?' ”




Garrett Denson understood the struggle many face regarding addiction.


He decided to make a life altering change and entered a long term faith based rehabilitation program. Garrett thrived in the program,ended up giving his life to Christ, and became a light to the world. After graduating he went on to serve in leadership where he poured into others struggling with addiction. Garrett had a passion for people and a heart to serve. He was and still is loved by his family and many, many others that had the privilege of getting to know such a kind hearted spirit.


The Garrett Denson Scholarship has been established in his honor as a way for his passion to serve others to carry on.

Below are some answers to common questions about financial giving. If you still have questions, please contact us.

At least 84% of each dollar you give goes directly to our addiction recovery and Post-Graduate Sustainability programs. At most, 16% of funds are used for administration and fund-raising. We at AIM greatly appreciates the sacrifice and commitment of donor partners. Please call us to learn more about how our funds are used.
