The Hitt family of HITT Contracting, a member of ABC of Virginia, recently donated a $16 million gift to the Act on Addiction campaign, a program launched by Inova Health System that fuels awareness, combats stigma and provides resources for those suffering from substance abuse in the Northern Virginia area. There are nearly 20 million American adults who suffer from addiction, and a recent survey says that approximately half of adults do not know how to help someone in need of treatment or support.
“While these statistics are startling, each number represents the life of an individual, a friend, a family and a neighbor in our community,” says Brett Hitt, co-chairman of HITT Construction. “We are honored to play a role in supporting Inova Heath Foundation in this mission to raise awareness about the dangers of addiction.”
