MADD Unveils New Victim Support Services
Author: Auger Law | April 27th, 2015
MADD fights tirelessly for the rights of victims and their families. The group not only fights to ensure that the rights of victims are protected, but that victims and their families have adequate access to support services. MADD currently has more than 1,000 advocated across the country who are trained to provide support for victims of drugged or drunk driving.
Volunteers staff a 24-hour help line that provides victims with support any time of day or night. The group promises to provide support to victims as long as there are people who need it. In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, MADD has launched two brand new online tools with which survivors and victims of drunk driving can find the support they need.
A new Facebook group has been launched specifically for victims and survivor. The group provides an online space for people to connect, share, and look for the support they need. Any victim of survivor is welcome to join the closed group by clicking here and requesting membership. Those who are not victims are invited to join the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Facebook page instead.
The second support service launched by MADD last week is a new online chat feature on their main website. Victims and survivors will receive the same type of support that the hotline provides without the need to make a phone call. Live chat can be located on MADD’s homepage or, alternatively, the Victim Services page. The online chat feature is available Monday through Friday during normal business hours.
If you attempt to chat with a volunteer and none are available, leave a message in the chat box. Your query will be answers by email as soon as someone is available to offer assistance. Whether you are a victim or a survivor, MADD hopes that you will find these two new ways to find support effective and useful. Spread the word about these tools freely! The more victims and survivors that MADD can reach, the more impact the group will have.
