Last year, nearly 72,000 Americans lost their lives to a drug overdose. The onset of the coronavirus has exponentially increased the number of fatal and nonfatal overdoses. At this rate, we can expect far more deaths than ever before.
Even worse, the number of Americans who live with addiction continues to grow. As of 2019, over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 struggle with substance use disorder.
Addiction is a disease. Substance use disorder and mental health challenges are treatable. SAFE Project works collaboratively — in a nonpartisan way — to bring solutions to individual communities, campuses, businesses, and active duty service members, veterans, and their families.
Help us end addiction one person, one campus, and one community at a time.
