Savings lives starts with changes in state legislation. 

By enacting laws on the state level, we can create policies that will significantly reduce the devastation that addiction causes to families.


Shatterproof is there every step of the way, advocating for these legislative achievements. We retain lobbyists who have deep relationships at state capitals, and we leverage our relationships with state governors and committee chairmen to make our voices heard. We call on our Ambassadors to rally, testify, and share their stories. And we activate hundreds of supporters in every state, giving them easy online tools to call, tweet, or email their reps, to write op-eds, and to spread the word to friends and family.

All this has led to a lot of success so far. But there’s more to be done.

Proper spending of opioid litigation funds

Lawsuit settlements must be spent on addiction treatment—not on filling gaps in state budgets.

Payment reform

People with addiction must have access to care that is affordable, science-based, and readily available.

Mental health and substance use disorder parity

All medical conditions should be covered equally by health insurance. States need parity laws to provide crucial enforcement details.
