Founded in December 2014 by Lee P. Clifford, the idea was orginially to build a museum focused on informing the public on matters related to addiction and recovery. The vision quickly expanded and we ultimately adopted a new name: The National Addiction Awareness Complex.

The original planning team established the non-profit, identified needs, and developed the business plan, however, progress was hindered in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. At that time, several key members retired and progress stalled.

The vision and mission lived on and the team is ready again to embark on this ambitious project!
