As we are approaching International Overdose Awareness Day – August 31 followed by Recovery Month in September, the Chris Wivholm Foundation wants to remember those, who we lost too soon, and celebrate individuals, who are in recovery and are doing well.  One of the missions of the Foundation is to change the stigma around addiction or Substance Use Disorder (SUD).  Many parents, who lost children to SUD, agree that the stigma was one of the strongest obstacles and contributors to their deaths. We will be featuring these stories on our social media accounts: Facebook and Instagram and on our website under “Share Your Story”. If you know anyone, who would like to share their story please send them to this link
