William C. Moyers
Vice President of Public Affairs and Community Relations
William Moyers is committed to eliminating barriers to recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. As Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation's Vice President of Public Affairs and Community Relations, Moyers leads the organization's policy and advocacy activities. From "carrying the message" about addiction, treatment and recovery, to public policy and philanthropy, Moyers brings a wealth of professional expertise and an intimate personal understanding to communities across the nation. He uses his own experiences to highlight the power of addiction and the power of recovery.
Moyers is the author of Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption (2006), a memoir that became a New York Times best-seller and is now in its third printing. His new book, Now What? An Insider's Guide to Addiction and Recovery, was released October 2012 by Hazelden.
In this new book he navigates the maze of addiction: how to find help, what it means to recover and the importance of openly sharing our stories with the public and the next generation.

As a former journalist for CNN, his work has been featured in the New York Times, USA Today and Newsweek.
