Partnership for a Drug Free America

This is why I love working with smart planners. They dig and dig until they find just the right insight and then let the creatives play. I think this was one of the first campaigns to use the fact that drug addiction was a disease. You wouldn’t shun your dad for having heart disease, why stigmatize those with addiction? The rest just took off from there.
