What is Cultivating connections?
Cultivating Connections is an organization dedicated to helping people live happy and healthy lives free from drug abuse and addictions. We are reenvisioning what effective addiction treatment, prevention, and policy look like.
Prevention starts with education. We believe effective drug education beings with honesty. The War on Drugs has made it evidently clear that misinformation and propaganda do not make for effective education. We are working to create an honest drug education system.

Effective addiction treatment comes in many shapes and sizes. But our government invest nearly all our resources into one treatment method. That is, Medication-Assisted Treatment. We are urging local government to support novel addiction treatments. Because addicts need more paths to recovery.
Portugal, Switzerland, and The Netherlands made bold steps in drug policy by decriminalizing drugs. The results are in; decriminalizing drugs reduces the amount of illicit drug use and decreases the rate of addictions. We are advocating for aggressive policy reform.
