Advocacy of war on drugs
Drug advocacy groups are important to the mission we all share: to save lives through recovery. These groups are making incredible progress to increase public awareness and improve policies on advocacy about drugs. Advocacy groups often stem from personal tragedies.
1. Shatterproof: Stronger Than Addiction
Slogan: Prevention works. Treatment is effective. Recovery is possible for everyone.
About Shatterproof: Shatterproof was started by Gary Mendell, a father who lost his son Brian to the disease of addiction in 2011. Gary says, “Research exists that could have saved Brian and countless others like him. But is not being implemented throughout communities and healthcare system.” Shatterproof has organized the Substance Use Disorder Treatment Task Force, whose mission is “to fundamentally improve substance use disorder treatment in the United States, in terms of both quality and patient outcomes.”
