This month’s podcast focuses on Rhonda Miller, as she discusses the loss of her son due to an accidental overdose and the isolation following his death from family and friends. In 2018, Speak Up for Ben was founded to break through the solitude and creating a sense of community with strangers in order to destigmatize addiction. Speak Up For Ben is located in Northampton, Pennsylvania and hosts several events at the Oasis Community Center. Their messaging is simple:
• Break the Silence
• End the Stigma
• Never forget
To understand how you can play a role in reducing the stigma of addiction, tune in to this episode of Mondays With Mel below.
