Be Part of the Conversation on the Surgeon General’s Report on Addiction
Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health was released on November 17.
Surgeon General Vivek Murthy made the goal for the report clear: ignite meaningful conversation to ’turn the tide’ on our nation’s addiction crisis.
The conversation will only be meaningful if key players in solving the addictions crisis – you – take part in the conversation. We want you to be prepared. This toolkit can help you engage media, craft compelling stories and inform your community about addiction.
As providers of critical addiction services to millions of Americans, you know what helps people recover. You work to create a strong continuum of prevention, treatment and recovery support services. You have expertise and an informed perspective to share. The toolkit is designed to help you share that expertise widely.
