On October 4, 2015 tens of thousands of people those in long-term recovery, families of loss, prevention educators, public health advocates, clergy, union leaders, individuals young and old turned out on the National Mall in Washington, DC. At the foot of the Washington Monument on a cold, damp night, the silence around addiction ended. With a little help from friends including Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, Steven Tyler, The Fray, Jason Isbell, Johnny Rzeznik, and Jonathan Butler; elected leaders such as Senator Rob Portman, Senator Ed Markey, and former Congressman Patrick Kennedy; as well as the Surgeon General of the United States and many others, Facing Addiction was born. Facing Addiction is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to finding solutions to the addiction crisis by unifying the voice of the more than 45 million Americans and their families who are directly impacted by addiction. Our vision is to bring together the best resources in the field to work collaboratively in order to reduce the human and social costs of addiction, every year, until this public health crisis is eliminated. Working with more than 750 organizations who have partnered with Facing Addiction, the Action Network now reaches over 15 million Americans. The Action Network set out to draft the most comprehensive agenda ever created regarding advocacy on addiction issues. These organizations make up the most diverse coalition of organizations, in both scope and geography, ever assembled in this arena. With the leadership of the Facing Addiction Action Committee, many months of planning, input, revisions and collaboration resulted in the advocacy agenda you will read in the following pages. This document outlines our agenda as well as how we intend to implement these programs. We hope you ll find opportunities for you and the organizations you represent to become engaged in this life-saving agenda. We urge you to join the Facing Addiction Action Network and get out in your communities. For more information on how to partner with Facing Addiction, please contact our National Director of Outreach & Engagement, Michael King, at Thank you for all you do. Together, we will continue Facing Addiction.
