FightAddictionNow.org is an online addiction support community run by a team of people whose lives have been directly impacted by addiction. We can relate to those struggling with drugs or alcohol, as well as the loved ones suffering along with them. Having experience with addiction firsthand we know the impact it has had in not only our own lives, but millions of others across the country. We can’t sit back and watch this epidemic continue to take the lives of thousands of people every year. Something must be done.
Our Mission Statement
Fight Addiction Now works to help raise awareness, reduce the stigma, provide support and offer solutions to those in need of addiction help. We work with several recovery centers throughout the United States to provide a network of options to anyone seeking professional substance use treatment.
One of the biggest hurdles toward getting treatment for addiction is the national conversation surrounding substance abuse. We believe that spreading awareness, reducing stigma, providing support and offering solutions are the keys to solving the nation’s addiction epidemic. These are also the driving goals and passions behind Fight Addiction Now.
Getting factual, medically sound information to those struggling with addiction is absolutely necessary. So is connecting people in recovery to peers who have been through similar experiences. These are the principles that guide everything we do.
We also put an emphasis on getting the family involved in the treatment process. Several scientific studies have supported the idea that family engagement will influence how quickly an individual starts and finishes treatment. One study, published as recently as last year in the International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction, reported that those in treatment for addiction were about 10 percent more likely to finish if a family member stayed involved.
We partner with a number of drug and alcohol rehab professionals across the country. These connections allow us to help members of the Fight Addiction Now community get access to treatment, self-care information and other helpful recovery resources.
Keeping up with all the new information coming out about addiction, drug use, health care and treatment can be a challenge. We've made things easy by doing all the research for you, and posting the results on our informative blog.
