The addiction epidemic has become the single largest cause of fatalities among men and women under the age of 50.
This epidemic is hurting our nation, and we need your help to fight it. Here are a few ways you can be part of the solution and join us in taking action against the addiction epidemic.
#1 – Take the #NaloxoneSavesChallenge
Naloxone, also known as Narcan®, is a medicine used by emergency medical professionals to reverse an overdose. Naloxone saves lives every day and helps get people to treatment, but we believe more progress can be made if more people know about Naloxone and keep it on hand.
Our #NaloxoneSavesChallenge is a social media campaign to raise awareness about the importance of Naloxone. There are five easy steps to take the challenge and spread the word about Naloxone with your friends and family. Learn about the importance of Naloxone and how to participate in the social media challenge.
#2 – Share Your Story
Have you been personally impacted by the addiction epidemic? Whether your story is a story of loss or a story of recovery, we believe sharing our stories is a powerful way to help others feel less alone in the wake of addiction. Stories can give us strength to take a stand against the addiction epidemic and break the stigma that surrounds addiction. We invite you to share your story here.
