Our Lost Loved Ones Program
Losing someone you love to an accidental overdose has the possibility of completely destroying a family. On February 24th 2019 Valerie and Ned Felici lost their son Ned Felici Jr to an accidental overdose, leaving behind a mother and his 7 year old son. Check out this video to see what we planned for little Ned and his family!

STRIVING TO BRING AWARENESS
"Eliminating The Stigma"
With this initiative, our goal is to inform, educate and continue to spread awareness through our collaborated efforts. Additionally, we strive to humanize those suffering from the disease and highlight the fact that no one is immune. We wish to create an environment where those suffering from this disease are able to comfortably converse and coexist amongst others without the fear of being judged or dehumanized. With access to the right resources and information provided by us more people can become better informed on this issue resulting in the transfer of information to others along the way.

Losing both of your parents to accidental overdoses at any age would be extremely difficult to process, so expecting a 9 year old child to handle that responsibly and maturely would be impossible. Check out this video to see what we had planned for Joey!

Working Towards A Brighter Future
To be a voice for all; to humanize and advocate for everyone suffering from this fatal disease and beyond. To eliminate the stigma attached with addiction and challenge the way this disease is approached. To expeditiously demonstrate the damaging affect of demoralizing epithets such as “drug addict." To make the use of such epithets in all forms morally unacceptable and synonymous with other morally unacceptable epithets. To remind people that addiction is in fact a disease as defined by The American Medical Association, The American Society of Addiction Medicine and should be treated as such.
We will create a space where everyone suffering from this disease and beyond can live openly and free of judgment. A space that is ubiquitous, not confined to an NA or AA meeting where we can freely express how we feel to loved ones in times of need without fear of disapproval. A space where we are loved and accepted with open arms for who we are as we do with all other diseases. A space where we make “I’m in recovery” synonymous with “I'm a cancer survivor" and the reactions from each receive equal levels of overwhelming exuberance and accomplishment.
We accept this role as the voice for millions. It is our responsibility and our obligation to make a difference and leave this place better than we found it. With your help, we will make the world aware that addiction is not a choice. Drugs & alcohol are not our problem. Drugs & alcohol have nothing to do with our problem. Our problem is us and the way that we think. Drugs & alcohol were the solution to our problem. We chose to pick up drugs & alcohol. We did not choose for our body to react differently than anyone else's when we put drugs or alcohol in it. The decision to pick up a drug or alcohol is a choice. Being 1 in every 7 Americans with the disease of addiction is not. With your help we will make this a reality, it’s only up from here!
