Today’s podcast is featuring an organization that is doing something significant to fight this catastrophic fentanyl poisoning epidemic.
Stop The VOID was formed to bring to the public’s attention, through education, awareness and legislative advocacy, the immediate danger of sudden death associated with the use of illicit drugs laced with deadly fentanyl.
Their purpose is to educate youth about the danger of sudden deaths associated with fentanyl poisoning. They have created educational materials, public service announcements in the form of documentary type films which quite honestly are hard to watch but incredibly important. They have talking points for educators and parents - their ultimate goal is to educate everyone about fentynol poisoning and about the dangers that abound on social media platforms where many of these drugs are purchased. One of their key strategies is to get into every school system to share information; their website has stories of living victims, usually the loved ones left behind.
