Overdose is the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 and affects people from all walks of life. Helping end the cycle of addiction is the motivation behind Dirt City Sanctuary. Co-founder Stacy Peck shares her personal account of how substance use disorder has impacted her life.
Is your community or school struggling with communicating the effects and damage the opioid crisis is leaving in its wake? Do you need raw, dynamic and engaging speakers to connect with your audience to address the current opioid epidemic sweeping our nation? The Dirt City Sanctuary team is available to speak individually or as a team.
We develop and deliver thought-provoking, active and dynamic speaking engagements and keynotes on a variety of topics focusing on substance use disorder, mental health and the road to sobriety that can adjust in length or scope to fit your budget. These presentations are engaging, energetic and most importantly, real stories of overcoming substance use disorder, loss from substance use disorder and life beyond substance use disorder.
DCS has featured speakers for groups large and small on local and national stages. The team brings personal experiences alive working to create bridges to help with loved ones or individuals facing substance use disorder to find hope. DCS will work with you to tailor a message to your audience, providing new perspectives and food for thought.
Stacy Peck witnessed her own Father’s harrowing struggle with opioid substance use disorder and along with the rest of her family, felt helpless and had no idea where to start. When someone is using illicit drugs like heroin, cocaine, meth, you have more ground to stand on when talking to them about getting clean (not that the struggle to assist is any easier), but when doctors are prescribing the drugs to your loved ones, it can be difficult to argue that there is a problem. Stacy decided to help Tyler get clean, but had no idea what a commitment it would be. As a fan of checklists, she worked with Tyler to determine all the barriers he was facing to stay clean and together, with the help of Wendy and the community, they faced each obstacle head on. She enjoys speaking about this process and what she has learned about substance use disorder since the loss of her Father in 2016 and partnering with Tyler on his journey.
