Preventing Opioid Deaths Among Young People

Institute for Recovery Advocacy

Our mission is to provide a leading national voice on all issues related to addiction prevention, treatment and recovery and to facilitate conversation among those in recovery, those still suffering and society at large. We are committed to smashing stigma, shaping public policy and educating people everywhere about the problems of addiction and the promise of recovery.

Smashing the Stigma of Addiction

We are committed to helping smash stigma by shining light on the positive faces and voices of those who recover.

Confronting the Opioid Epedmic

The expanded availability of prescription painkillers and heroin has created a public health crisis that demands attention from the government and communities nationwide.

We support regulation of alcohol advertising, increases in alcohol taxes and a number of state and local initiatives.
