Many Americans are oblivious to the effects that illegal drugs have on the mind, body and spirit. They are the lucky ones. The tremendous costs borne on society and families of addicts for the illegal use of drugs is tremendous.
Drug use costs Americans an estimated more than $180 billion per year, all of us pay in one way or another even those members of society who have nothing to do with drugs. We pay for the lost productivity, health care, the cost to the criminal justices system, child welfare and the impact the drugs have on our society.
The objective of this website is to educate and increase awareness of the cost of addiction. We want increase awareness on the science behind addiction and how we as a society can treat the problem and not just the symptoms.
We are here to look at how each of us can make a difference and ultimately create a better society.
