In 2013, Justin Phillips lost her son, Aaron, to addiction. He died from a heroin overdose.
Since then, Justin founded and is now the executive director of Overdose Lifeline, Inc., a statewide Indiana nonprofit that provides citizens affected by substance abuse and addiction with education, resources, and support.
Justin’s also responsible for the passing of Aaron’s Law, which makes Naloxone, a heroin overdose antidote, available for over-the-counter purchase.
Through Overdose Lifeline, Inc., and thanks to Phillips, more than 15,000 Naloxone kits have been distributed to first responders and the public across seventy Indiana counties.
