We are so grateful to this grieving mother for sharing her tragic story tonight as a panelist at our Virtual Town Hall on Fentanyl Poisonings & Overdose. Your courage and dedication to spreading the word about this very real danger is truly saving lives. “In sharing Zach’s tragic story tonight, I will address what is being called the “paradigm shift” with drugs – single use products that deceive and kill, including fake pills, their accessibility on social media, and this demographic of young people that have not traditionally died from experimentation or recreational use. Additionally, fentanyl is in other products everywhere, and the other community experts on the panel will speak to those dangers. This information is crucial to keeping our communities safe. We must de-stigmatize these conversations, we must warn kids of this deadly paradigm shift, and we must share the compassionate resources that exist in our community for individuals who do battle substance use disorder. Please join us tonight to learn more and to help spread awareness. ?” — Laura Didier, Zach Didier’s mom
