As part of the Foundation’s efforts to address the opioid crisis, we’re working with local government agencies, schools, community-based organizations, and health care providers to humanize addiction and remove stigma as a barrier to treating Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Through these collaborations, we are sharing impactful stories about those affected by OUD and are inviting community members to join us in the campaign to remove the stigma of addiction, raise awareness, share their experiences, and find resources for help.
