Addiction: Dispelling the Myths

Turning the science of addiction into stories that stick.

Addiction Series  One-Pager


The animated series aims to expand public understanding about addiction and replace the myths and misinformation that keep substance use disorders (SUDs) from being treated like any other medical condition.

Educational episodes run two-to-three minutes and are meant to be consumed like “snack-packs” of key scientific information.

“ADDICTION” is animated by artist Patrick Smith and produced by the Addiction Policy Forum.

The content of each episode is the result of close collaboration between scientists, patients, families impacted by addiction, and members of our team.

A special thanks to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) for the science highlighted in the series.
