Someone You Know: Facing the Opioid Crisis Together

Opioid addiction has reached epidemic proportions in our region and across the country. It is a crisis that affects everyone.
Someone You Know is a grassroots effort of the Independence Blue Cross Foundation to destigmatize opioid addiction. Started in 2018 as a regional public awareness and community engagement effort in southeastern Pennsylvania, Someone You Know is breaking the stigma of opioid addiction, inspiring hope and empowering others to seek help and treatment.

From April 1- April 5, the IBC Foundation will feature its newest mobile exhibit in the lobby of the Independence Blue Cross. The exhibit shares the stories of diverse people from the southeastern Pennsylvania region who have found a life in recovery, supported a loved one with opioid addiction, or sadly lost a loved one to opioid addiction. Every story humanizes the disease of addiction.
