Addiction is a chronic disease that changes the brain.

Addiction is the third leading cause of preventable death in the United States.

Addiction’s estimated annual cost to businesses is nearly $200 Billion.

Addiction affects one in every three families.

Only one in three individuals needing help for a substance use disorder actually seeks help.

Overdose is now the #1 cause of accidental death in the United States.

The stigma attached with addiction is a primary reason individuals needing help don’t ask for it.

If there’s anything on this list that is news to you, please feel free to ask questions…this disease is killing an entire generation and affecting all of us.

Let’s work together to help change perceptions, end the stigma, and save lives.
