Every day more lives are being claimed by overdose, and families are feeling hopeless. Give an Hour is dedicated to identifying the needs of those impacted by the opioid crisis and being part of the solution.

Facing the facts

The Numbers are Alarming

Identifying the needs of those who struggle with addiction, the needs of family members, prescribers, and those impacted is a monumental task.  Give an Hour collaborates with organizations to provide education, preventative care, and a holistic approach to this epidemic.  Mental health education and treatment is required both before addiction and during recovery.  Healing is a journey. Give an Hour is here for the individual, community, and systematic growth that our nation desperately needs.
