Overdose Lifeline Beginnings

PatternArtboard-2

Founded by Justin Phillips in 2014 after the death of her youngest son, Aaron, due to a heroin overdose, Overdose Lifeline is a statewide Indiana non-profit dedicated to helping individuals, families, and communities affected by the disease of addiction/substance use disorder through advocacy, education, and support.

Mission

To carry the message of hope to individuals, families, and communities affected by the disease of addiction.

Vision

We envision a time when the disease of addiction does not carry a stigma but is provided the attention and care required of a chronic disease.

I feel like we’re able to make a difference. We’re going to save lives. We’re going to stop people from having to experience what I have experienced. 
It is who Aaron was – he would want to help people.
