Addiction shatters lives

We believe that together we have the capacity to reduce the devastating impact of addiction on families across America. Together we can help parents prevent their children from developing an addiction to alcohol and other drugs and ensure that those afflicted with this disease gain access to proven and effective treatments and long-term recovery programs.

Together, united, we are Shatterproof

Together we can reduce the stigma and secrecy associated with addiction, removing the shame felt by those struggling with this disease and their families. Together we can change the conversation about addiction.

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.

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