RAISING DRUG AWARENESS
Who Are We
On June 14, 2009, Tyler Yount lost his battle with addiction. He was 23 years old. He died from an accidental overdose after relapsing. He had been drug free for eleven months before his overdose. Tyler left a loving family and many friends.
In response to Tyler's death and the growing epidemic of opioid overdoses in our community, our Foundation began a program that provides training and the lifesaving opioid-reversing drug, Naloxone, to first response agencies and individuals in Macon County. Our mission is to bring meaning to our loss by saving others.
If you have been affected by a loved one suffering from addiction, you know the importance of our work. Every dollar helps us with our mission.
Please take a moment to see how you can help. We offer training sessions and hold events to raise awareness and money for our important cause.
Dealing with addiction is never easy. But, losing
another life to opioids is unacceptable. We give those who are suffering a chance to get help.
