We are Action on Addiction. We take action to disarm addiction

Addiction is the biggest preventable killer in the UK.

It destroys lives, breaks up families, harms communities and has a damaging impact on society as a whole. In some way it affects us all.

We think it is important to take a dynamic and integrated approach to improving our understanding of addiction and our responses to it.

We are the only charity working across the addiction field in research, prevention, treatment, professional education, support for families and children and campaigns.

We are working hard to realise our vision of people free from addiction and its effects.
