Three years ago we launched the Addiction Policy Forum with a vision to create a world where fewer lives are lost and help exists for the millions of Americans affected by addiction every day.
Today we are proud to be a volunteer-led, staff-supported organization. In the past year we have launched and expanded numerous programs with the help of our families. From the creation of Addiction Resource Center with a patient portal and a resource line staffed by trained counselors to help patients and families find the help they need, the launch of 20 state chapters, and work with Congress on a comprehensive package of bills to address addiction and the opioid epidemic, H.R. 6., we have seen tremendous progress to help families and communities in crisis -- but we know that there is still much work to be done.
21 million Americans struggle with the disease of addiction, and we will not stop until there are comprehensive resources for every individual, family and community touched by this disease. To support the Addiction Policy Forum in our next year and beyond, text FORTHE21 to 444999 today or visit www.addictionpolicy.org/donate.
Together, we can solve this.
