The Stacie Mathewson Foundation was founded in 2011 to focus on addiction recovery and prevention for young people and is committed to erasing the social stigma associated with substance use disorders.

About Stacie Mathewson


As the founder of The Stacie Mathewson Foundation, Stacie is focused exclusively on promoting addiction awareness, recovery, prevention and education at the local, state, and national level. Stacie is both professionally and personally connected to the cause, witnessing since childhood how addiction disease can tear families apart and span generations. With the loss of a son who first faced the disease of addiction in his early adolescence, Stacie’s commitment to preventing addiction and protecting the health of our youth is unrelenting.


Inspired by previous service on the board of the finance committee of Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack, Stacie continues to actively work on raising awareness of the dangers of prescription drug misuse. To date Stacie has received 14 awards for her innovative efforts from National, State, and Local organizations in the areas of recovery advocacy, education, and science-based research.


Presently Stacie supports several nonprofits, advocacy programs, and changes in legislation in Reno, Nevada.  Tour De Nez, Voices in the Life, The Children’s Cabinet, Joined Together Northern Nevada, Quest Counseling, Life Changes, Inc., Lunch Aid, Musicians for Heroin Awareness, and University of Nevada – Reno.


Stacie's vision is to create a landscape of hope for families and their loved ones seeking support for recovery, healing, and wholeness.
