Addiction: A Path Forward
The nation is battling a drug overdose epidemic, and West Virginia is ground zero. With the highest drug overdose fatality rates in the country, the impact on our state, our communities and families and our future is nearly immeasurable, but hope remains.
Our vision is to provide resources to address the immediate issue of addiction and to greatly strengthen efforts to improve the state’s economy, repair the deteriorating fabric of our communities and rally people in the fight against hopelessness and despair. Through training and education, clinical research and compassionate care, we can help change the future for those battling addiction.
West Virginia University is uniquely positioned to tackle this issue.
