The mission of The FED UP! Coalition is to create one voice calling for an end to the epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths attributed to opioids (including heroin) and other prescription drugs.

The FED UP! Coalition is working to find ways to:

  • Prevent our children, friends, and loved ones from becoming addicted to opioids
  • Ensure that people suffering from opioid addiction have access to affordable, evidence-based treatment
  • Support and enable recovery
  • Eliminate opioid overdose deaths.
