What is #talktome?

#talktome is an invitation to take the first step to a mutual understanding and a mutual healing through the power of conversation. If you just #talktome you’ll understand that I’m not an “addict,” I’m just like you. If you #talktome you’ll see that I can help more than you think I can. If you #talktome we can create a dialogue that can transform the way we approach addiction. #talktome and we’ll change more than we ever imagined.
