Finding Solutions to the Opioid Crisis: We Are the Answer to Ending America's Addiction Crisis
The Yale Program in Addiction Medicine welcomes Ryan Hampton (Founder, The Voices Project and Mobilize Recovery) to discuss strategies to address addiction in the U.S. and support access to recovery for individuals with substance use disorder.
An alumnus of the Clinton White House, Hampton has worked with multiple non-profits and national recovery advocacy campaigns on issues surrounding addiction, and served as part of the core team that released the first-ever U.S. Surgeon General's report on addiction in 2016. In recovery from a decade-long opioid addiction, he is now a prominent, leading face and voice of recovery advocacy and is working to changing the national conversation about addiction.
In 2019, Hampton was named by Facebook as an inaugural leadership fellow and created the national advocacy initiative, Mobilize Recovery. Since its inception, Mobilize Recovery has recruited and trained over 2,000 new advocates from all 50 states focused on community-based solutions to end the addiction crisis.
This event is part of the Yale Program in Addiction Medicine's Finding Solutions for the Opioid Crisis speaker series made possible by generous support from the Sandgaard Foundation.
