Pink Cloud Foundation

A nonprofit organization

$7,262 raised




Founded in February 2019, Pink Cloud Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Minneapolis, MN.

Serving the Twin Cities metro area, and surrounding communities, we provide recovery housing assistance, support services, and other critical resources to individuals transitioning from in-patient substance abuse treatment centers, or correctional facilities, to a "Recovery Residence".  We also partner with many other nonprofit organizations from across the state to also assist anyone seeking long-term recovery from addiction or Substance Use Disorder (SUD).

Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions and resources to those needing assistance during their recovery.

"Pink Cloud" references a phenomenon first coined in the early years of Alcoholics Anonymous, and now commonly found in Psychiatric literature, known as "Pink Cloud Syndrome".  Pink Cloud Syndrome is defined as "the state of mind, usually experienced in early sobriety (Day 14 to 45)", characterized by extreme happiness, sudden clarity, and overconfidence.  This "natural high" feels very similar to the "high" we felt during our time in active use of drugs and/or alcohol. 

Due to these erratic swings of emotion, its important to note that a person's highest likelihood of relapse is during, or directly after, this "pink cloud" phase.  Coincidentally, it is often during this vulnerable "pink cloud" phase, that many individuals are completing their in-patient program and being discharged from the treatment facility.  This is why a smooth transition to sober housing is so critical! 

Pink Cloud Foundation's mission is to provide housing assistance, support services, and other critical resources to those seeking long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction 

Pink Cloud Foundation's vision is to make the transition for those in early recovery, from an in-patient rehabilitation treatment facility, and into recovery housing, as easy and seamless as possible. By alleviating some of the immediate burdens on these individuals, we feel, allows for peace-of-mind, fosters serenity and hope, reduces stress, improves mental health, and keeps individuals engaged in their recovery.

Simply put, our belief is that a smooth transition into sober-housing and a life of recovery, not only minimizes stress and anxiety, but greatly reduces the chance of relapse during this critical and transformational time.
