Addiction is the biggest preventable killer in the UK. It breaks up families, damages communities and destroys lives. In some way it touches us all.
Action on Addiction takes action to disarm addiction. We do this through research, treatment, family support, education and training.
You can help us to prevent the devastating effect of addiction on our children, families and friends. All donations will go towards our ground breaking research and treatment programmes.
