The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids + Center on Addiction has partnered with Facebook to build a public awareness campaign titled Stop Opioid Silence (SOS), with the goal of inspiring people to speak openly about opioid use disorder and to get help when needed. The campaign features a series of stories from those affected by the opioid epidemic, as well as short video segments from public officials in different states who describe the impact of opioid addiction in their state. Messaging around the campaign features some profound statistics and facts, such as, “1 in 2 Americans is affected by opioid addiction,” or “opioids kill more people than car accidents.”
