The McGee Project

The McGee Project

Since 2015, The McGee Project has been on a mission to educate and inform, as well as save, young people from the disease of addiction. The McGee Project works to provide life-saving education to high school and university students regarding the disease of addiction.

The McGee Project provides powerful stories from recovering addicts, who have found a way to overcome addiction and have gone on to achieve their dreams. We connect youth with resources that will aid them on the path back to recovery, whether by means of social worker support or private providers.
