Pursuing freedom & healing from addiction. At all costs.

Fighting Addiction Face To Face.

We Are Addiction Prevention Coalition.

There is one thing we all share in common; Struggle. It is indeed the most common trait between people of all ages, genders, races, and backgrounds. Though our circumstances may differ, we are all beheld to the gravity of life’s challenges. Often times, we become ashamed of our struggle or we feel overwhelmed by what seems to be insurmountable obstacles. We seek answers and solutions. and at times, we simply seek to escape. Consequently, some turn away from connection with others and community--into the darkness of isolation, and despair.

“Addiction is not a moral failing. It is a chronic illness that must be treated with skill, urgency and compassion.” - Vivek Murthy, U.S. Surgeon General


Awareness communicates information about substance use disorder, helps break the stigma of getting help early, and offers hope that recovery is possible. Awareness is the first step to invoking change.

Our vision is to prevent substance abuse and relapse by inspiring and educating people to live with hope, resilience and purpose.

We will continue to lead the way as a convener of organizations united to prevent addiction and relapse.
