Michael is a textbook overachiever — StuCo treasurer, valedictorian. He’s college-bound and ready to start the next chapter of his life.

But there won’t be one.

A few months into college, Michael will turn to opioids to escape the overwhelming stress and anxiety of his course load. He’ll know he needs help, but he’ll be too ashamed to ask for it.

His parents won't even know he’s taking them. They'll ask what they could've done. But it’ll be too late.

Opioid dependence can happen after just 5 days.
