About this cause:

Accidental drug overdose now kills more Americans than car accidents. One of those people was Chris Atwood, a sweet, funny, 21-year-old boy from suburban Virginia. These aren't just numbers - they are real lives, shattered by the millions, all over the country.

The Chris Atwood Foundation works to provide recovery support and resources to people and families living with addiction; to change the conversation and policies about addiction from ones of stigma to support; and to prevent the disease from taking hold of future generations.

To create a world where addiction is recognized as a preventable and treatable disease so that people who suffer from it can experience the love, understanding, and support to live full lives in recovery.

The Chris Atwood Foundation began in 2013 after the Atwood family lost their son and brother, Chris, to an accidentally fatal heroin overdose. He passed away at age 21, following a 6 year battle with addiction. The CAF is a 501(c)3 charitable organization started in his memory, that strengthens the addiction recovery movement through education, stigma reduction, and recovery support services while promoting prevention measures to protect future generations from this disease.

We do this by:

•Educating the public about the disease of addiction

•Increasing public access to recovery resources

•Building and supporting recovery communities on college campuses

•Stigma reduction campaigns

•Providing treatment scholarships

•Promoting prevention and early-intervention practices

•Advocating for policy changes that are in favor of recovery
