This month the Addiction Policy Forum launched #129aDay, an awareness and action campaign. #129aDay represents the number of individuals who die each day from a substance use disorder: parents, siblings, children, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. To honor these individuals, we are going to share their stories with you for the next 129 days. Together, we can end this epidemic. Find resources here for you, a friend, a loved one or share with your community. For those families impacted by this epidemic, share your stories with us
