Savings lives starts with changes in state legislation. 

By enacting laws on the state level, we can create policies that will significantly reduce the devastation that addiction causes to families.


Shatterproof is there every step of the way, advocating for these legislative achievements. We retain lobbyists who have deep relationships at state capitals, and we leverage our relationships with state governors and committee chairmen to make our voices heard. We call on our Ambassadors to rally, testify, and share their stories. And we activate hundreds of supporters in every state, giving them easy online tools to call, tweet, or email their reps, to write op-eds, and to spread the word to friends and family.

All this has led to a lot of success so far. But there’s more to be done.

Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs

These programs have been proven to reduce the overprescribing of deadly opioids—but few states have mandatory participation.

911 Good Samaritan Laws

Prioritizing saving a life over arresting drug users, these laws increase the likelihood that a witness will call 911 in the event of an overdose.

Naloxone Access

Naloxone is a safe medication that can reverse an opioid overdose in minutes. All citizens should have access to it.

Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Parity

All medical conditions should be covered equally by health insurance. States need parity laws to provide crucial enforcement details.

Prescriber Education

Better education for our healthcare providers is an important tool to prevent dangerous painkiller misuse.
