What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Addiction can be prevented. Addiction can be treated. Successful long-term recovery is a reality. No one has to die from addiction. The size of the addiction problem demands a unified movement of individuals, families, and organizations to come together and build a sustainable campaign to change public perceptions about this health issue, and in turn public policy at local, state, and national levels. In early 2018, Facing Addiction merged with the oldest addiction advocacy nonprofit, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD). The merger of NCADD and Facing Addiction brought together the rich, nearly 75-year history of NCADD and a upstart, three-year old organization already making history, amassing an unparalleled national coalition. Combining these two orgs demonstrates our commitment to bring together the best resources in the field in order to reduce the human and social costs of addiction, every year, until this public health crisis is eliminated.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Facing Addiction with NCADD is working to turn the tide on America’s addiction epidemic while unifying the voices of the 45 million American families directly affected into a constituency of consequence. Our goal is to create the one place to turn to when individuals, families, and communities are in need of information and resources to overcome addiction.
The work we do aims to accomplish the following:
Build a national constituency to give the millions affected by addiction a voice
“Rebrand addiction” to create the understanding, empathy, outrage and demand urgently needed to advance solutions
Increase access to effective prevention, treatment and recovery programs
Translate scientific innovation into useful tools and services
Advocate for governments to implement evidence-based policies and regulatory practices to end addiction
Widely share the proof of long-term recovery


• Education to transform misconceptions surrounding addiction
• Information and tools to help those who are or someday may be struggling with addiction;
• System changes to drive a comprehensive public health response, and
• A movement that will inspire these changes and provide needed funding.

Building a presence across the US by expanding our Affiliate & Action Network, to deepen our local impact and reach those most in need.
Training over 1,000 leaders in 25 cities and towns nationwide to provide tools, and skills needed to help their communities respond to alcohol/other drug problems with clear strategies and critical resources.
Addiction Resource Hub - User-friendly, searchable asset map of over 50,000 (and growing daily) resources for prevention, treatment, recovery, jobs, housing and other information.
Recovery-Centered Addiction Health Services - Facilitating a healthcare industry alliance to transform addiction care and demonstrate economic benefit of integrated and comprehensive services to prevent, intervene early, treat, and recover from addiction.
Creating multimedia campaigns to end the stigma of addiction, which keeps this devastating illness in the shadows and prevents those suffering and their families from receiving the help they need.

Organized UNITE to Face Addiction, a rally on the National Mall to push for addiction solutions. In 2016, PBS aired a 60-minute version of the rally. Since this historic event, we've quickly become the leading unifier in the effort to turn the tide against addiction. We forged the largest coalition connected to this cause ever assembled: our Action Network composed of over 850 orgs from across the nation. We were selected to be the exclusive co-sponsor to launch the U.S. Surgeon General’s historic report, “Facing Addiction in America,” in 2016. Viacom aired a special program on the report. Next we are deploying our Recovery-Centered Addiction Health Services - facilitating a healthcare industry alliance to transform addiction care in America and demonstrate the economic benefit of integrated and comprehensive services to prevent, intervene early, treat, and recover from addiction. We also aim to create multimedia campaigns to end the stigma of addiction.
