Drug Crisis In Our Backyard is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families struggling with addiction. The organization was originally started in 2012 by Susan and Steve Salomone, and Carol and Lou Christiansen, after the loss of their sons to a battle against herion. They seek to reduce the stigma associated with addiction and help families that are still struggling by promoting awareness of drug use, assisting individuals and their families, and implement measures to hold accountable organizations perpetuating drug use through over-prescription.
