I pledge to :
Learn as much as I can
about recent research that explains addiction for what it is--a chronic, often relapsing brain disease--in order to help EDUCATE and thereby shatter the stigma, misinformation and shame that surrounds the disease and keeps families, persons with the disease and communities so stuck in destructive cycles.
who share my journey and when (if ever) I am comfortable doing so--share my own story, successes, fears, setbacks and constant worry in order to help others and from them find help for myself so that I might be part of the solution, end my isolation and put a face on the family disease of addiction.
Unite with others
including amily members, legislators, community leaders and whomever else is interested to EMPOWER the Change Addiction Now (C.A.N.) grassroots movement because
TOGETHER • UNITED • We C.A.N.
