Addiction kills more Americans than car crashes or gun violence.
Every day, 174 of our sons, daughters, and loved ones die from drug overdoses.
Only 1 in 10 Americans with addiction receives any form of treatment—and that treatment is rarely based on proven research.
Countless families experience so much shame and stigma, pain and suffering.
