We Are The Answer To Ending America's Opioid Crisis

Ryan Hampton

Years into recovery from a decade-long opioid addiction, Ryan Hampton is now a leading face and voice of addiction recovery. Ryan was a part of the advocacy team that helped to contribute to the U.S. Surgeon General’s first ever report on addiction. He was singled out by Forbes as a top social media entrepreneur and contributing force to the recovery movement. Currently he is an outreach lead and recovery activist for Facing Addiction, a non-profit dedicated to ending the addiction crisis in the United States.

His thought leadership on addiction recovery topics has been published in various publications and online journals including The Wall Street Journal, Slate and Forbes. Ryan has appeared nationally as a valued panelist and keynote speaker at notable events and is passionate about thought provoking discussions to solve this crisis.

In 2016, Ryan created the web series Facing Addiction Across America, documenting his 30 day, 28 state, and 8,000 mile cross-country trip visiting areas hit hardest by the drug epidemic. Ryan shared these stories and his conviction that we already hold the solutions to this crisis in his book, “American Fix — Inside the Opioid Addiction Crisis and How to End It” published by St. Martin’s Press in 2018.
