How I Overcame Addiction

For decades, I’ve maintained my sobriety by regularly participating in the sobriety of others and attending AA meetings. The changes I’ve seen in those 40 years are astounding.

Today, twice as many Americans die of addiction every year as died during the entire Vietnam War. And while there have been incredible innovations in recovery programs, as a nation we have failed to address the staggering magnitude of the crisis.

Later today, my campaign will release “Recovering America”, a documentary film about the drug addiction problem in our country and the kinds of rehabilitation programs my administration will support.

Addicts are some of the most incredible people. Given a chance to heal, they can do incredible things. Even run for president.
