About the Speakers

Save the Michaels of the World raises awareness of prescription and other drug addictions. Abuse and misuse of these controlled substances leads to serious illness, depression, deaths from overdose and suicide, and the devastation of caregivers and loved ones.

Save the Michaels House of Hope and Community Resources supports families during their loved one's journey through addiction and into remission. They provide a nurturing and supportive environment to parents, grandparents, and spouses of addicted individuals. We practice compassion and promote education, self-help, and wrap-around care before, during, and after treatment.
