THE FIRST STEP TO ENDING THE EPIDEMIC AROUND ADDICTION IS EDUCATING OURSELVES
I PROMISE TO SEE ADDICTION AS A DISEASE AND THE PERSON BEHIND IT
Addiction changes the chemistry of one’s brain so that controlling drug-use is no longer a choice. It’s a medical disorder, one that needs our help as a society to heal.

I PROMISE TO UNDERSTAND ADDICTION DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE
Within a week, the body can develop a dependence on opioids. And it can happen to anyone regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation or socio-economic status.
RECOVERY IS A JOURNEY
Recovery doesn’t just happen overnight, it happens every single night. It happens by talking about addiction. It happens by relapsing. It happens by trying different treatments. Whether you’re struggling with addiction or the stigmas associated with addiction, recovery is possible.
