Partnership for Drug-Free Kids

Show your support for all those impacted by the opioid epidemic. Help fight the stigma that too often prevents people from getting the help they need by updating your Facebook profile with the Stop Opioid Silence frame.

Updating your profile picture is one way you can let your friends and family know that if they’re struggling, or someone they know is struggling, it’s OK to speak up and ask for help. 1 in 2 of us knows someone affected by the opioid epidemic. It’s time to encourage people to break the silence.

Partnership for Drug-Free Kids

Every 11 minutes, opioids claim another American life. Fathers, mothers, sons, daughters - all of us are affected. Watch as 12 people from all parts of the country break the silence, detailing their experiences with their own addiction, or those of loved ones, and their paths to a hopeful future. If we talk, if we listen, if we share, we can begin to end the stigma that too often prevents people from speaking up and getting help.
