Staying Connected: A Message from our CEO, Creighton Drury, on COVID-19
Dear friends and supporters,
As our country moves into what appears to be a new reality arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the health, safety and well-being of our staff, community members and their families are top priorities for us. Through this challenging period and until further notice, the Center on Addiction staff is working remotely while doing its part to contain this latest public health threat. But our work continues.
We are dedicated to making our expert resources and content available to those in need via our website, social media and direct-to-family services (including phone, text and email options to connect)—especially during this time of crisis for the nation. Families can continue to seek help, answers and loving support at Center on Addiction. Learn more about our support services and read our evolving COVID-19 content and access additional resources. We also continue to work avidly with our partners—policymakers, media organizations, technology companies, researchers and donors—to champion the need for attention to those impacted by addiction during this pandemic crisis.
I am confident that we will find balance, for both our staff and families in need, by practicing self-care, flexibility, understanding, and compassion. While we may be physically separated, we will continue to work together and connect with each other in a myriad of ways. I look forward to keeping in touch with all of you over the coming weeks and keeping the mission to end addiction top of mind.
CEO, Center on Addiction + Partnership for Drug-Free Kids
