Substance Use Disorder Recovery and Prevention Speaker

Bring change to your community by introducing an addiction speaker and leader in substance use disorder advocacy, education, and support.

Addiction Recovery Advocate and Speaker


Addiction recovery isn’t easy but it helps when a community understands and becomes actively involved. As the opioid epidemic in the US has grown, so too has the need for increased awareness and education around substance use disorder and the people it affects. Justin Phillips’ goal is to bring this awareness to as many communities as possible, speaking on the opioid crisis, addiction recovery, and overdose prevention.

Previously, Justin has been invited to speak at national, regional, and local events on the topic of prescription drug and heroin use. As an Executive Director of Overdose Lifeline, she has hosted numerous law enforcement and public education and training sessions.
