Hope Stems Campaign Creatively Advocates for Opioid Addiction Recovery

Shatterproof, a non-profit organization focused on addiction awareness and advocacy, has started a campaign called Hope Stems, with the goal of generating awareness around opioid addiction and the stigmas that often accompany it. The campaign uses a flower arrangement depicting how opioids alter the brain, with celosia forming the brain shape and black poppies representing opioids.

The Fix reports on the flower exhibit that Shatterproof recently displayed in New York City in front of Macy’s, during which passerby were encouraged to remove a black poppy from the brain flower formation, which symbolized, “the restoration that happens when someone gets treatment and is able to overcome their opioid addiction.” The Hope Stems campaign can be seen next in Atlanta at the Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit from April 22-25, 2019.
