WHO WE ARE 

The Chris Atwood Foundation is a peer-driven community organization in Northern Virginia providing free harm reduction and recovery support services and advocacy for people impacted by substance use.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 Addiction is a health condition that requires proper care & treatment.

Recovery is possible and there are many pathways to recovery.

People who use substances have a right to healthcare and dignity.

Harm Reduction and Recovery work better together.

Compassion, love, & connection change lives.

Family Recovery and engagement are valuable.

Getting support should be easy.

In loving memory of Chris Atwood. 7/3/1991 - 2/23/2013

May his light shine on forever through our work.
