Welcome to the Shatterproof Addiction Education Program

Offered by The Hartford

The Hartford and Shatterproof have partnered to offer this addiction education program to close the knowledge gap about opioids, break the stigma of addiction, and foster prevention, treatment and recovery. Together, we will build recovery-friendly environments and overcome the opioid crisis.

This education program is designed to demystify the facts about substance use disorder and provide information if you need help for yourself or a family member, friend, or co-worker dealing with addiction. By learning, you are taking an important step in reducing the impact of addiction in your community.
