Promote Research

We support evidence-based research to inform the development of family-centered drug policies and family health-based substance use disorder treatment.

Families for Sensible Drug Policy is bringing communities together to create a new vision and approach to help those impacted by substance use and mental health issues.

“Families for Sensible Drug Policy is helping bring our laws into alignment with the reality that we care about our loved ones even if they use substances. We do not want laws that unnecessarily make the lives of substance users worse. We want services that actually prevent substance problems, and provide multiple pathways out of substance problems when users are ready to change, however much they are ready to change. Thank you FSDP for carrying out this life-saving and life-enhancing work.”

– Tom Horvath, PhD, ABPP, President, Practical Recovery, President, SMARTRecovery
