Advocate for Change


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.

Your story can spark change

Nearly half of all Americans have a family member or close friend with addiction. This issue affects so many more people than most realize.

We know the science and the statistics, but what motivates change are stories of real people. Your stories. We’ll help you find your voice.
