Be SAFE Campaign: Progress Report

A year ago, SAFE Project was just getting started on our Be SAFE campaign — a national effort  to arm the public with helpful information about prescription painkillers, and encourage everyone to have open conversations with their healthcare providers about pain management options.

Today, you can find the Be SAFE campaign in 13 states (Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York,  Virginia, West Virginia) and the District of Columbia.

We’ve distributed over 1000 customized signs. Those displays — including both digital and physical  — can be found in colleges and high schools, VA Medical centers, hospitals, public institutions, and on digital billboards in major market bus stops and mall displays. 

The VA Hospital in Beckley, WV was the first in the nation to join SAFE Project’s Be SAFE Campaign – officially launched on April 2, 2019, with signage throughout their facility that highlights the risks related to opioid use and encourage veterans and their families to ask for alternatives to opioids.
