Raise Your Voice

Welcome to Wake The Nation!

Wake the Nation is an advocacy organization dedicated to bringing drug awareness and education to the forefront of discussion while supporting those suffering with addiction and their loved ones. We are partnered with New Directions Addiction Recovery Services as a registered Illinois 501c3 nonprofit organization.

Our focus is to provide communities with the educational information necessary to build awareness of the growing drug epidemics and serve those who suffer with addiction as well as their families and friends by providing opportunities of support. In a nation where substance abuse and misuse is an increasing issue, affecting more families across the country than not, Wake the Nation strives to address the issue in a welcoming manner that families and friends, as well as those suffering from addiction, feel comfortable acknowledging drug related issues and receiving services.
