Breaking the Silence and Erasing the Stigma

Mission

Since our son’s death in 2014 to an accidental heroin overdose, it has been our mission to share with the community our story in order to educate and spread awareness about the dangers of opiates and other harmful drugs both legal and illegal. We want to empower others with the knowledge that we have gained throughout this journey for the purpose of prevention and early intervention.

Vision

Our vision is to witness the end of the opioid epidemic and to break the silence and erase the stigma of Substance Use Disorder.

Announcement

We are excited to share that we are now officially a prevention coalition registered through Missouri’ Department of Mental Health. We are connected with coalitions across the state in Missouri’s Prevention Network and our local Prevention Resource Center, NCADA.
