We’re going to stop treating addiction as a moral failing...

and start seeing it for what it is: A chronic disease that must be treated with urgency and compassion…which is why I’m proud to announce that next year, I will be releasing the first-ever Surgeon General’s Report on substance use, addiction, and health.
Vivek Murthy - Surgeon General

I learned that there is no single face of addiction...

It impacts all of us, and our families. I learned that recovery starts with humility. It’s sustained by the strength to ask for help.
Vivek Murthy - Surgeon General

I learned that recovery takes hope...

To get us through the moments when we’re not sure we can make it. I learned that recovery is about community.
Vivek Murthy - Surgeon General
