TRANSFORMING ADDICTION

We help families prevent and treat addiction and support recovery for their children and loved ones. We also work to improve the addiction treatment system and end the addiction crisis.  


What drives us

Our decades of experience, combined with escalating needs driven by recent global and national events, strengthen our resolve to eradicate addiction and save lives. We embrace four key reasons for optimism and paths to sustained change.

Addiction is a preventable, treatable disease for which effective care exists.

Because most people do not know it exists or cannot access it, we must focus on advancing quality addiction care so that everyone who needs help can get help – in treatment, recovery or prevention.

Addiction is not a moral failing.

We must remind people that they are loved, there is no place for blame. Compassion and empathy, when combined with scientific solutions, will save lives and end addiction as we know it.

Addiction is a public health crisis.

When laws and resources evolve to address this public health issue, we will dramatically improve how well we prevent and treat addiction for millions of people.

When families are engaged, the odds of success increase dramatically.

We must enable families to find answers and make a difference by serving, supporting, and partnering with them.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

At Partnership to End Addiction we strive to address racial inequality and injustice, both within our organization and through our work. We adopt practices that promote diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in the services we provide, the families we seek to reach and the people who make up our team. We work to create an environment and engage in activities that reflect these values.
