A Pledge To Change: The ACTION Campaign

The launch of the ACTION (Adopting Changes To Improve Outcomes Now) Campaign coincided with the launch of SAMHSA’s National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month in September.

The ACTION Campaign is committed to making a difference in recovery-oriented systems of care by providing rapid access to services, improving client engagement, and creating a seamless transition between levels of care.

The goal of this initiative is to improve the lives of 55,000 people affected by alcohol and drug abuse.

SAMHSA has joined many other organizations in the substance abuse field in support of the ACTION Campaign. Those include the State Association of Addiction Services (SAAS), the Network for the Improvement of Addiction Treatment (NIATx), and the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD), among others.
