The Addiction Policy Forum will launch Focus on Innovation, a new project featuring innovative programs that address addiction in the fields of prevention, treatment, recovery support, overdose reversal, criminal justice reform and law enforcement strategies.

Many states and communities all over the country have created innovative programs to address substance use disorders in their area and we believe they deserve recognition for their hard work in the face of a national epidemic. Innovations in addressing the disease of addiction will help change the way our country views and responds to addiction.

We invite you to nominate innovative programs to be considered for the project. All nominated programs will be reviewed by the Addiction Policy Forum's National Advisory Board. Selected programs will receive the following: 

  • National recognition as an Innovation, including announcement to the media and key policymakers;

  • A feature article published on the Addiction Policy Forum website and delivered to over 200 partner organizations;

  • A seal of recognition to include on their website and organizational materials; and,

  • Inclusion in a compilation of innovative programs to be published by the Addiction Policy Forum.

Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis until March 31st, 2017
