Months after the unexpected death of her husband, Vicky Cornell joins Addiction Policy Forum’s Advisory Board to support other families impacted by addiction

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- FEBRUARY 21, 2018 -- Vicky Cornell, wife of iconic singer, songwriter and Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave front man Chris Cornell, is joining the Advisory Board at the Addiction Policy Forum. As a member of the Advisory Board, Vicky will be joining former Drug Czar General Barry McCaffrey and former Members of Congress Alan Mollohan and Frank Guinta.

“I’ve learned a lot since losing Chris, including the fact that addiction is a brain disease – a disease that is both preventable and treatable,” says Vicky Cornell. “While I can’t bring my husband back, I can help the millions of other families struggling with addiction and I hope we can prevent this horrific experience from happening to others.” Vicky Cornell appeared on Good Morning America this morning and will appear on ABC’s Nightline tonight opening up about her husband’s tragic passing for the first time.  She also highlights her plan to address the addiction crisis.

The Addiction Policy Forum is a national nonprofit focused on improving policies related to substance use disorders through a comprehensive response.
