Addiction Resources

Recovery is possible with awareness, screening and treatment. Below, we've gathered resources to learn more about addiction. Note, this page is not intended to serve as medical guidance or endorsement of any organizations, but rather a compilation of resources that may be helpful.

Detailed Addiction Overview

This Detailed Addiction Overview covers key metrics and trends related to substance use disorder (SUD) prevalence, challenges that individuals and families face along the journey, and ways that various ecosystem players engage with and support people with SUD. We created this resource because while we have personal experience with SUD, we wanted to root our understanding in evidence-based research as an input ot our Social Impact work. We are sharing this resource in hopes that it helps other who want to learn more.
