Arts and Advocacy Award

The AAAP Arts and Advocacy Award is presented to an outstanding member of the community who has made significant contributions to the public’s understanding of substance use disorders and co-occurring psychiatric disorders through their work in politics, advocacy or the arts. These contributions have a great impact on educating the public about substance use, its influence on society and health, and the efficacy of treatment. Additionally, such works reduce stigma and barriers to care.
