Who We Are

A network of reporters, researchers, academics, and advocates concerned about the way media represents drug use and addiction. 


Our Mission

To help journalists and opinion leaders provide accurate, humane, and scientifically-grounded information in this contested terrain.


What We Do

We offer expert sources —including people with lived experience of the issues — and up-to-date and evidence-based information on key issues surrounding drug use and addiction. Our programming includes:

- Web portal

- Social media monitoring and outreach 

- Dissemination at conferences, educational institutions, and other venues

- Changing the Narrative Webcast

Efforts were led by Health in Justice Action Lab at Northeastern University in Boston 


Funding for this project was provided, in part, by the George Sarlo Foundation and the Vital Projects Fund
