BENEFITING: FAMILIES AGAINST NARCOTICS

EVENT: Give Detroit Challenge

EVENT DATE: Oct 02, 2015

THE STORY:

Founded in 2007, Families Against Narcotics is a grassroots organization originating in Fraser, Michigan. Six years ago, close to 100 angry and frustrated people gathered at a town hall meeting in the basement of Christ United Church in Fraser to discuss the recent deaths of several young people from heroin overdoses. Many of the attendees were grieving the loss of a loved one, others were suffering the nightmare of addiction themselves or dealing with an addicted loved one, some were in recovery, others were school personnel, law enforcement, community leaders, and concerned citizens. All shared a common concern, our kids were dying. Why was this happening and what could we do about it? Anger filled the room, and fingers were pointed, someone had to assume the blame. After several hours, tempers subsided and all who were present realized nothing would be accomplished until we found a common ground and positive avenues to tackle this issue. One of the young recovering addicts said, "Kids aren't listening to you (adults). Let us talk to them and share our real stories of addiction." Richard Ripicky, Superintendent of Fraser Schools, made it happen. The group that met in that Church basement have continued their efforts, along with hundreds more, in the fight to make a difference.

We work tirelessly, educating young adults, parents, school personnel, law enforcement, judges and most of all doctors of the dangers of prescription drug abuse, especially painkillers. We currently have ten chapters in the state of Michigan and several more in the making.
