Hosting the North TX Overdose Awareness Day in August and distributing Narcan throughout the community.

Please join us in the fight to reduce stigma and end overdose.
Addiction does not discriminate—not by race, by gender, by age, by education, or by economics. Directly or indirectly it impacts all of us.
Randy Roland died of a drug overdose in 2016. In his memory and to help others struggling with drug use and addiction, his family formed a nonprofit. Using Randy’s childhood nickname, ROO, as an acronym for Reacting to Opioid Overdose, the organization was created with these goals:
North Texas Overdose Awareness Day
Start and promote the North Texas Overdose Awareness Day which takes place August 31st each year as part of a larger network across the globe.
Saving Lives with Naloxone
Provide Naloxone, the life-saving drug for overdose victims to help save lives and spread information.
