Board of Directors
Ansley Silvers serves as the President of the Board. She is the Director of Addictive Diseases at Highland Rivers Health. She was previously the Director of Women’s Outreach Services. Ansley hopes to join forces with community partners to educate the community not only about drugs but to fight the stigma of addiction, encourage people to reach out for help and assist in strategic planning of prevention activities. My hope with FAD is to be able to offer speaking engagements to all ages and organizations to educate about drug use, the biochemical aspects of use and addiction as well as the stigma.
