Tools to Take Action

​​​​We aim to improve the lives of 50,000 people living with substance use disorders around the world by April 2020. Will you join us?

We will improve awareness, prevention, and treatment and recovery by focusing on four actions: changing the narrative, saving lives from overdose, improving pain management, and reforming university curricula. 

This toolbox includes resources to help you lead your work to improve the lives of people living with substance use disorders.
