More than 399,000 people died from overdoses involving any opioid, including prescription and illicit opioids from 1999-2017. The first wave began with increased prescribing of opioids in the 1990s. The second wave began in 2010, with rapid increases in overdose deaths involving heroin. The third wave began in 2013, with significant increases in overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids, particularly those involving illicitly-manufactured fentanyl (IMF).
"Frankie's VOICE" is a fifth annual fundraising event, in remembrance of Frankie D. Raffa Jr , to aid young people that suffer with substance abuse. We, all of us, can no longer sit in silence or whisper in the darkness. We need to stand, united in one voice, and rise together to speak and shout in passion and for those who can't.
