We believe that shame, stigma, failed drug policies, and disconnection are major drivers of this crisis. This is why our team and everyone we train are equipped to meet people where they are at to offer judgement free connection to support and resources. This is what we are doing to address this crisis and save lives in Ohio:
Individuals Naloxone Trained
Naloxone Kits Distributed
Overdose Fatalities Prevented
Note: Overdose reversal numbers are based on statistical estimations. Not all overdoses are potentially fatal and tracking Naloxone used is a challenge.
Check out our upcoming outreach, education, and volunteer events! If you’d like to get involved, you can reach out to Z Acey at [email protected].
With a history rooted in lived experience, Thrive for Change was started through a collective desire to make a difference, fill service gaps, and save lives.
