Help Us Help Others

Funds will be utilized:

  • to supply addiction and recovery related artwork to substance abuse treatment centers, schools, community organizations, addiction science professionals, medical professionals, and the general public (worldwide).
  • to encourage and support local communities to host their own Addiction and Art exhibition (worldwide).
  • to promote and document all community based Addiction and Art efforts (worldwide).
  • to support www.addictionandart.org, the web site essential to all of the above.
