“The guy who is changing the way America looks at addiction.”

AfterParty Magazine

Ryan Hampton serves as an outreach lead and recovery advocate for Facing Addiction, a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to ending the addiction crisis in America. Prior to that, he worked with multiple non-profits across the country and served in a staff capacity for various political campaigns. In 2016, Hampton publicly disclosed his decade-old struggle with heroin and prescription medications, along with his journey in recovery, in an effort to advocate for reform on a national public policy level.

He was an elected delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention from California, specifically advocating for the addiction & recovery community. Hampton produced a 7-part documentary series, Facing Addiction Across America, chronicling his cross-country road trip to the DNC advocating for reform and seeking out other like-minded people in long-term recovery to join the growing movement to end the addiction epidemic.

For his work on the #AddictionXAmerica project, Hampton has been called “the guy who is changing the way America looks at addiction.” His journey has been featured by the Huffington Post, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, CBS, NBC, ABC, Upworthy, Dr. Oz, and the White House. Most recently, Hampton was featured by Forbes Magazine as one of four top social entrepreneurs advancing the nationwide recovery movement.
