Anyone can get addicted.

People from all backgrounds can experience addiction. Addiction doesn’t care how old you are, how much money you make, or the color of your skin; it has no bias.

Is it affecting daily life?

When drugs or alcohol are used so often that they have significant negative effects on your life, this is called a substance use disorder.*

Has substance use led to you or someone you know...

  • Being out of work and couch surfing?
  • Doing poorly in school?
  • Crashing a car?
  • Coping with mental illness by self-medicating?
  • Risking losing custody of children?

Help is available.
