“COVID-19 may have paused our everyday lives, but unfortunately addiction and substance misuse disorders persist. More than half of Americans know someone impacted by opioid misuse alone,” said CSIP Executive Director Marjorie Clifton.

Tech Together partner efforts include Twitter offering hashtags for thousands of people in recovery to join conversations. Twitter provides real-time engagement to share stories of recovery, and online community building for people facing similar battles of addiction and recovery.
