This epidemic of opioid addiction and death that we are living in is not the result of the use of opioids per se, but by society’s response to this use. What the “War on Drugs” has accomplished has been to turn what is a chronic but treatable, manageable, disease into an epidemic of addiction and death.
We are in the midst of an epidemic of opioid addiction and death. Almost everyone knows someone living an opioid addiction or who has died from one. And they all have the same question: why can’t we, didn’t we, stop?
Broken No More would like to thank everyone who participated in the Giving Tuesday Event held on 11/29/2016.
We really appreciate your support. Your generous donation will go a long way in helping individuals who have lost a loved one due to substance use and to end the current failed war on drugs.
Once Again Thank you for all your love! You have made a real difference in the lives of the individuals we serve. Your support and love means the world to us!
