AddictionResource.com awards $3,000 in scholarships each year to students who share their vision for an addiction-free world.
Addictive substances abuse has killed more people than every American war combined, and more than 10 times over. Many victims of drug addictions feel as though they are fighting a war themselves.
Through the years, millions of lives have been damaged due to drug abuse and addiction. In the US, there are an estimated 3.6 million people who are addicted to some form of drug, whether for recreation or by prescription. These include people who accidentally become dependent, and eventually addicted to painkillers like Opioids.
With the AddictionResource Scholarship, we want to challenge current and prospective college students to share their story on how we can make the world addiction-free.
