Our mission is to combat the fentanyl crisis by building a community committed to saving lives. We spread awareness and provide resources for testing, education, and prevention.
In just months, we've grown exponentially, distributing over free test strips and assembling an incredible team of volunteers. With the launch of our new website in July 2023, we're excited to unveil a revitalized organization. Our fresh brand identity includes a new and improved test strip, adding the ability to purchase strips as well. We've restructured our team, placing passionate ambassadors in leadership positions, and implemented an efficient system for distributing test strips and forming partnerships. These changes mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Awake Tomorrow. Join us in combatting the fentanyl crisis and building a safer future.
