Predictors of Success


In addition to having the right champions, the community should also have a United Way presence, a community foundation, and a legacy of vision, leadership, and generosity.

Experiences from our first Affiliate, and from early-stage rollouts into other communities, show that adopters clearly understand the value of our model to their communities.

The strongest advocates are those who see the disease every day, such as employers, health care systems, criminal justice officials, and treatment providers. They understand that systemic, foundational change is needed, and recognize the power of the Face It TOGETHER model.

Although our community model is far reaching, the core of our approach is simple: dramatically increase the number of people seeking help, and significantly improve service delivery by transforming the quality of addiction care.

Adopters may tailor the Face It TOGETHER model for their community’s needs and circumstances.
