Holding hands
Dear Joseph,

We have seen a number of important actions on the opioid epidemic in the last two weeks. Last Thursday, the President Trump declared a public health emergency, followed by the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisisreleasing its comprehensive report of critical recommendations this week. These are both important steps in the right direction. But if we are going to see any progress on the opioid crisis, we need more resources – and that, unfortunately, remains uncertain.

Families are turning to the Partnership for help and we need your support. With 144 people dying every day in drug-overdose related deaths, 91 of which are directly related to opioids, nothing is more overwhelming than having a child who is struggling with addiction.

A gift of just $100 allows our Parent Helpline counselors to connect with four parents seeking help for their child’s substance use. Make your gift today to ensure that every family can continue to be empowered by and have access to our free resources, tools and one-on-one support.

The timing to make an impact has never been more critical, so thank you for helping us be a lifeline for families, change the conversation and inspire hope for the future.

With gratitude,

Fred Muench, Ph.D.
