Amanda Siebe, #PatientsNotAddicts, Disabled Americans for Change

Patient Leader

Amanda is the founder and CEO of Disabled Americans for Change (NPO and 501c3) which is the largest grassroots advocacy and activism group the chronic pain community has with just under 10,000 members in about 6 months. Their campaign #PatientsNotAddicts has reached over 2 million people and is dedicated to ensuring that chronic pain patients maintain access to opiate therapies for their pain management for the debilitating chronic pain that consumes the life of 1 out of every 6 Americans. 40 million Americans rely on daily opiates and 95% of them use their medications as directed, so why should they lose their medications in another false effort to end the 'opiate epidemic'.
