The group was founded by Nick Morgan. Who says he used drugs for several years and decided to get sober when his best friend died from an overdose.

Now, he has a message for anyone struggling with addiction.
“Speak out you know talk to latch on to the people who have been through what you are going through, open up,” said Nick Morgan. “Drop that guard down and put faith into other people who've been what you’re going through and are happy today.”
According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, heroin accounted for more than fifteen-thousand overdose deaths in 2016.
