Impact is a non-profit organization and treats a variety of clients of differing socioeconomic status. The Impact Treatment Center offers the lowest available rates in the industry and “believes that everyone should have access to quality substance abuse treatment.”

The event began with James and his brother Ronnie, who are both heavily involved with Impact. The James Caan golf tournament is able to spread drug and alcohol awareness as well as generating funds that will go directly towards the facilities expenses. Funds are raised through the player fees, which cost around $1,500 dollars as well as generous donations from various celebrities and corporate supporters.
