The Mission of Battlefield Addiction is to eliminate the suffering of families, individuals, and communities impacted by addiction


At Battlefield Addiction, we envision a world where families, addicts, and communities are transformed, connected, accountable, and able to work in partnership to eliminate the suffering that occurs with addiction. Addicts will be empowered to employ new solutions, will be supported in their efforts, and will become healthy, functioning, self-sufficient, and contributing members of their families and communities. Families will be empowered to function as the primary support system and safety net they are meant to be and communities will become unburdened by addiction related crime, homelessness, and public health issues and gain a powerful resource of highly-functioning, capable, and accountable citizens.

  • We don’t believe or adhere to what “THEY” say.
  • Everything we do must be cool.


We are a small, grassroots, non-profit founded in 2014 by a mother, Angie Keaty, who found help with her addicted son through the coaching of a former addict and sober living provider, Art Dahlen. Art discovered that the addicts he was trying to help had better success in recovery if the families became involved and engaged. After successfully coaching Angie, they joined forces and created Battlefield Addiction to help others. Their “Family First Approach” helps families reconnect with their addict, experience relief, strengthen family bonds, and support and guide their addict into treatment and recovery so they can become functioning, self-sufficient members of their families and communities. Since it’s inception, Battlefield Addiction has helped more than 4,000 family members and 700 addicts, from all ages and backgrounds, fight to rebuild their relationships and lives. 


In the last year, Angie Keaty has become sole Director of Battlefield Addiction and continues her focus on continuing to grow and evolve the organization to reach more families and communities.  Art Dahlen, while still a consultant and visionary for Battlefield Addiction, has stepped out to head Rebuild Recovery LLC and focus his passion on private family coaching and working more intimately with addicts in his smaller more focused program.
