Michigan Addiction Project
The Michigan Addiction Project was part of a national partnership in 2007 between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and HBO. The Addiction Project was aimed at helping Americans understand addiction is a treatable brain disease.
This effort resulted in nationwide airing of the HBO documentary "Addiction," in 2007, and numerous town hall meetings and house parties to mobilize communities around treatment and long-term recovery of individuals and their families.
The Bureau of Substance Abuse and Addiction Services (formally also known as the Office of Drug Control Policy) held a Legislative Briefing in June 2007, to inform policy makers and government leaders about recent advancements that the substance abuse services field had made in addressing drug and alcohol addiction. The links below contain updated information, similar to the handouts that were given to those who attended:
