Meet our team.

Addiction is a disease.

We’re committed to ending its stigma and helping those with this disease fully recover.

We are a community of families who have been affected by addiction.
We are focused on evidence-based solutions.
We are advocating for policy change both on the state and federal level.
We are Shatterproof.

Thanks to your support we’ve accomplished a lot.

We’ve created a community of ambassadors, fundraisers, and advocates. We’ve helped get life-saving legislation passed in 14 states, we've successfully advocated for issuance of the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, and successfully advocated for passage of the federal Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act - all while uniting families affected by addiction and providing a platform for those families to make their voices heard.

We host the largest peer-focused addiction event series, Shatterproof Challenge Rappel and Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction 5k, to unite families, media partners and corporations across the country to raise funds and help erase the stigma of this disease.

We are dedicated to creating a Shatterproof community that is stronger than addiction.
