A happy family of three takes a walk in the park

Many Black Americans can’t get the help they need because they don’t have equal access to treatment.

Together, we can change things.

Addiction is hardest on communities of color. 

Because Black Americans don’t have the same access to lifesaving resources, it can be harder for them to recover. And without the right treatment, more Black people die from fatal overdoses.

Between 2019 and 2020, fatal overdoses among Black people aged 15–24 increased by 86%. The NIH predicts that fatal overdoses among Black men in their 30s and 40s will increase significantly by 2025. And between 2015 and 2020, fatal overdoses among Black women rose nearly 150%, far exceeding increases in every other racial or ethnic group.

We must reduce barriers to proven treatment and recovery services for all people with addiction.
