What is addiction?

What is the impact?

The world’s largest man made epidemic was created by greed. Our country loses more people in one year to opioid overdoses than we lost in the entire Vietnam War. Addiction can affect anyone, from major cities to rural Oklahoma; nobody is immune.

stop

To fight addiction, we need to end the stigma associated with it. Shame keeps people from seeking help. Accepting addiction as a disease frees people to find support.

educate

Education is critical in the fight to end addiction. We educate the public about the risks of addiction and how to find help for those already struggling with the disease.

change

By working together, we can take action and change our community. Creating a culture of understanding will bring about solutions for Oklahoma and its citizens.

prevent

By openly educating our community, particularly young people, about addiction, we hope to empower everyone to decide their own Fate, ending the stranglehold of addiction.
