HBO is partnering with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, NIDA, NIAAA, Faces and Voices of Recovery, and others to conduct a national public outreach campaign, “Addiction and Recovery: Communities Take Action.” This is a one-year multimedia effort culminating in a national Rally for Recovery on September 15. The key television event is "Addiction", a 90 minute documentary initially airing on March 15.
