The founders of MAPDA strongly believe that when you are living through the realities of the tragic consequences of prescription drug abuse, sometimes reaching out and giving back to make a difference can be such an important way to heal. Whether it is because you have experienced the tragic loss of a loved one due to an overdose, or you have a loved one suffering with addiction or recovery, we want to give you an opportunity to do that. We know first-hand the importance of having a forum to share your personal stories and reach out to others.
We offer volunteer opportunities in many capacities and time commitments. The problem of prescription drug abuse is a growing epidemic and it will take many people to bring about the awareness and changes necessary to accomplish our mission and goals.

A heart kept permanently closed keeps people at a distance. A heart that risks being open invites them in, has nothing to hide, promotes generosity, prompts vulnerability, demonstrates love. If you wish to leave this earth a better place than you found it, bringing out the best in others, you’ll want to give your heart.
