These portraits are snapshots of the devastating addiction epidemic that has affected all of us. Publicly commemorating a family member or friend spreads the message that addiction is not to be endured in silence.
This page is an opportunity for family and friends to remember their loved ones and all the positive things they brought into this world. They were more than their disease; they had tremendous achievements and exceptional qualities. Take the time to find out their story.
These portraits also represent the need to assist those who are currently struggling by providing them with resources and supporting those in recovery. Please visit this interactive guide for mental health and substance use resources in your area.
