SAFE Choices

Speaking to communities about substance use disorder and the opioid crisis, encouraging communities to make positive change.

SAFE Choices is our speakers program, educating communities about substance use disorder and the addiction epidemic, while encouraging communities to make positive change.

Through this program we:

  • Train volunteers to become SAFE speakers
  • Work with organizations to book speakers at events.

BECOME A SPEAKER

We are interested in all speakers with a story to share about the addiction epidemic. Whether you are a family member who lost a loved one to overdose, experienced a family member who has been through treatment and recovery, serve in law enforcement, have expertise as a medical professional, or are someone in recovery, we want you to tell your story to educate communities and reduce the stigma around living with addiction and getting help.

BOOK A SPEAKER

Through our SAFE Choices speakers program, SAFE Project delivers speakers and subject matter experts to your school or community. Our volunteer speakers are able to discuss:

  • the dangers and signs of substance use disorder
  • share stories of healing and recovery
  • talk about the impact of the addiction epidemic on families and communities, and more.

We mold our programmatic approach to best fit the needs of your school or community. Our goal is to help students, parents, teachers and community stakeholders feel less alone and helpless in facing substance use disorder and the addiction epidemic.
