To reduce human suffering and the economic cost of alcoholism and other substance use disorders. We advocate for prevention, early interventions, and treatment services in a full-spectrum recovery-oriented system of care.
Prevention Works, Treatment is Effective, People Recover.
Substance use disorders must be treated as a chronic relapsing disease – like asthma or diabetes.
Substance Use Disorders should include an evidence-based continuum of care delivered by trained addiction professionals.
Services must be accessible and affordable for everyone regardless of race, culture, religion or ability to pay.
Treatment and aftercare are especially important for individuals in the criminal justices system as addressing their addiction is key for individuals to change their lives.
