Ryan Hampton Biography

A prominent advocate, speaker, author, and media commentator, Ryan Hampton travels coast-to-coast to add solutions to our national addiction crisis. In recovery from a decade-long opioid addiction, Hampton has rocketed to the center of America’s rising addiction recovery advocacy movement. An alumnus of the Clinton White House, he’s worked with multiple non-profits and national recovery advocacy campaigns. He is now a prominent, leading face and voice of recovery advocacy and is changing the national conversation about addiction.

With content that reaches millions each month, Ryan breaks down cultural barriers that have kept people suffering in silence and is inspiring a new generation of people recovering out loud through his Voices Project.

He was part of the core team that released the first-ever U.S. Surgeon General’s report on addiction in 2016 and was singled out by Forbes as a top social entrepreneur in the recovery movement. Ryan connects a vast network of people who are passionate about ending the overdose crisis in America. He has been featured by—and is a contributor to—media outlets such as USA Today, MSNBC, Fox and Friends, the New York Times, NPR, HLN, Vice, Forbes, Slate, HuffPost, The Hill, the Wall Street Journal, and others.

Ryan has received praise from Democrats and Republicans alike for addressing addiction as a trans-political issue—crossing the political spectrum to build an inclusive coalition focused on solutions. He worked closely with the White House, Senate Democrats, Republicans, and U.S. House leadership, helping craft portions of the historic H.R. 6, SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act, signed into law in October 2018.

In 2016, he created the web series Addiction Across America, documenting his 30-day, 28 state, 8,000-mile cross-country trip visiting areas hit hardest by the addiction crisis. His first book, “American Fix — Inside the Opioid Addiction Crisis and How to End It,” was released by St. Martin’s Press in August 2018.

In 2019, Ryan was named by Facebook as an inaugural leadership fellow and created the national advocacy initiative, Mobilize Recovery. Since its inception, Mobilize Recovery has recruited and trained over 2,000 new advocates from all 50 states focused on community-based solutions to end the addiction crisis.

He lives in Nevada with his fiancé, Sean, and their dog, Dollar.

Speaking Topics
  • Don’t Call Me An Addict

    Ryan Hampton believes that the way we talk about addiction can determine whether someone gets the help they need, or die. Shame and discrimination are still deeply rooted in our culture when it comes to addiction and you don’t have to look much further than the language we use to see it.

  • How The Purdue Pharma Bankruptcy Failed The Victims Of The American Overdose Crisis

    The real story of the Purdue Pharma bankruptcy wasn’t that the billion-dollar corporation was a villain, a serial federal offender. No matter what the news said, Purdue didn’t do this alone. They were aided and abetted by the very systems and institutions that were supposed to protect us. Ryan Hampton served as the co-chair of the official creditors committee representing victims in the Purdue Pharma LP bankruptcy case, and he has a story to tell about how a group of determined, ordinary people tried to see justice done against the odds—and in the face of brutal opposition from powerful institutions.

  • We Are The Answer To Ending America’s Addiction Crisis

    Ryan Hampton discusses how America got itself into one of the worst health crisis of a generation – and how we can come together to pull ourselves out of it.
