"What is Addiction" Video
Over 20 million people suffer from addiction in the United States – that’s one in seven people, according to the Addiction Policy Forum. CADCA (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America) and Addiction Policy Forum have partnered together to create “What is Addiction?” a video highlighting the nature of addiction and its effects on the human body, brain and development.
The video is a “crash course” about how to prevent substance use disorders, how addiction can hijack the brain, and what can be done when faced with addiction.
The mission of CADCA (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America) is to strengthen the capacity of community coalitions to create and maintain safe, healthy and drug-free communities globally. This is accomplished by providing technical assistance and training, public policy advocacy, media strategies and marketing programs, training and special events.
