We come together for #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day of giving and unity created as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. We are in the grip of the most severe substance abuse and overdose epidemic in the history of the United States. For many, this crisis will be the catalyst for developing a substance use disorder and for those already in recovery, the risk of relapse and overdose increases exponentially as they are cut-off from vital support networks. These realities are compounded by the fact that this pandemic is impacting our ability to respond. Social distancing has forced us to cancel traditional fundraisers which are crucial for continuing prevention efforts.
We need your support to help maintain essential activities such as developing educational resources and digital media campaigns, providing training for prevention and treatment professionals, and promoting sound drug policy at local, state, national, and international levels. Please support our mission to prevent drug use and promote sustained recovery by making a donation today at https://www.dfaf.org/make-a-difference/. Help us reach our $10,000 #GivingTuesdayNow fundraising goal!
