Addiction impacts millions of families of all types. Yet there is limited access to effective, evidence-based treatment; insufficient insurance coverage; and widespread low-quality, fraudulent treatment.
We can fix this. With your help, we can erase the stigma that has prevented treating addiction as the health care issue it is. We can raise awareness, educate others and change policy.
What does it mean to be an advocate? Our toolkit provides step-by-step instructions, including tips for building relationships and effectively communicating with lawmakers. We are building a movement to transform how our nation addresses addiction, and we need your voice!
