At SAFE Project, we encourage you to share your story about how the addiction epidemic has impacted your life. Stories can help break the stigma around addiction, and they empower us all to take a positive stand against this national crisis, at home and in our communities. When your loved one is struggling with a substance use disorder, the emotional and physical consequences can seem overwhelming. Not only can the effects negatively impact their own health, but also the health and well-being of their friends and family. This can lead to feelings of isolation, hopelessness, and despair.
We hope these stories help you and others feel less alone, while connecting people to a community of those who have experienced similar struggles and hardships while facing the addiction epidemic.
