80% of heroin users started with a prescription painkiller. Rebekkah had been an accomplished dancer and athlete before a sports injury introduced her to opioids and ultimately led to a heroin addiction. She shared her journey of detox and then recovery with us to help others see just how addictive opioids can be. Now, she’s regaining control of her life and helping to educate others.

We’re speaking up and out about the realities of vaping.
