UNITE to Face Addiction

The UNITE to Face Addiction rally is being organized by Facing Addiction Inc., a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to finding solutions to the addiction crisis, as well as an independent coalition of national, state, and local non-profit organizations. The vision is to bring together the best resources in the field in order to reduce the human and social costs of addiction, every year. By building a grassroots constituency to give the millions affected by addiction a voice, they aim to “Rebrand addiction”, increase access to effective treatment and recovery programs, and widely share the proof of long-term recovery.
