Celebrating Lost Loved Ones to the Opioid EpidemicPlease take a moment and add your lost loved one to this map that’s going to be show-cased at a National Convention in July. It is vital that UFAM floods this map with the pictures of our loss. We must put faces to the numbers.
“The rise in deaths due to prescription drugs and heroin is alarming. Often times society may have a perception of who this is. The fact is they are everyday people we love, everywhere. Click the ‘Contribute Lost Loved One‘ to add a loved one.”

Thursday, May 18th a few thousand people will gather on the lawn at the Michigan State Capital Building for the Unite to Face Addiction 2nd Annual Rally & Advocacy Day. And with a slogan like, “Be the Voice of Change,” and opening remarks from Michigan Lt. Governor Brian Calley, it promises to pack a triple punch of entertainment, education and advocacy.
One of the special events at the Rally will be free Naloxone training in the Resource tent on the North lawn. And three educators: Dr. Michael Mullins; instructor Jeannie Richards of Brian’s Hope; and instructor Kathy Redding of Capital Area Project VOX will conduct the training. Training is at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM and you can register before the event.The no needle, auto-injection products were graciously donated by Kaleo Pharmaceuticals and Adapt Pharma. And each participant will leave with two auto injector naloxone or two Narcan nasal spray products. And clear instructions on how to use them and save a life.
