Shatterproof

Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction Walk is a national movement. Families, friends, coworkers, and neighbors walk to bring the disease of addiction into the light. Whether you've had a substance use disorder or have watched someone you care about struggle with this disease, join us to show that no one should ever suffer alone. Unite with the community, so we can honor those who lost their lives to this disease, celebrate those who are living in recovery and bring hope to the millions that are still suffering, together.

Did you know:

  • Drug overdose is the #1 cause of accidental death in the U.S.
  • 1 in 3 Americans is affected by addiction.
  • Most Americans believe addiction is a character flaw, not a disease

Together, we can save lives. Together, we are Shatterproof.

About Shatterproof

Mission Statement

Shatterproof is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation addiction causes families.

Description

Welcome to Shatterproof! We believe that together we have the capacity to reduce the devastating impact of addiction on families across America. Together we can help parents prevent their children from developing an addiction to alcohol and other drugs and ensure that those afflicted with this disease gain access to proven and effective treatments and long-term recovery programs. Together we can reduce the stigma and secrecy associated with addiction, removing the shame felt by those struggling with this disease and their families.

Shatterproof will work to educate, empower and equip parents, families, educators, health care providers, legislators, and others to address addiction head on. We are building a national organization to address serious gaps in funding and resources for the disease of addiction. Please join us.
