RISE Life Management Services, was first established in 1989 as The Addiction Alert Organization (AAO) by a group of persons in recovery, with the assistance of the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica (PSOJ). After a period of fourteen (14) years AAO was reviewed and the direction, scope and focus of its programs were adjusted to meet the needs of young people at risk in Jamaica, particularly those living in inner city communities. RISE is the acronym for Reaching Individuals through Skills and Education, and its programs currently support all those previously carried out by the Addiction Alert Organization, including the prevention and treatment of addictive disorders, and expanded to embrace community-based health, education and vocational services for at-risk youth and their family members.
On December 6th 2009 RISE was the proud recipient of the Prime Minister of Jamaica’s award for their wide range of services to the Youth of Jamaica. RISE is the first and only recipient of this award.
