National Women Touched by Addiction Day Banner


On July 23rd, National Women Touched By Addiction Day aims to raise awareness of the unique struggles of women who are facing addiction and who have loved ones who face addiction.

The foundation, “encourage[s] women to share a photo on social media where they lift just one finger and share their testimony, or just show their support for an entire community of women who have felt the effects of addiction. [The foundation hopes] this will encourage women to seek help, know that they are not alone, and see the resilience women have.”
