1 in 7 Americans will develop a substance use disorder, but only 1 in 10 will get treatment.

We’re on a mission to change that.

Addiction is one of America’s most challenging public health problems and effects everyone. It’s a disease that crosses gender, ethnicity, age, and socio-economic lines. There is no cure for addiction, but it can be effectively treated, and we are committed to helping young people, women, and men overcome substance abuse to live extraordinary lives in recovery.
