NSC Survivor Advocate Network

  • Find Support, Share Your Story

    The NSC Survivor Advocate Network is a community of individuals and families whose lives have been forever changed by teen drivers, distracted drivers, prescription drug overdose or on-the-job incidents. Anyone who has lost a loved one, suffered an injury or has otherwise been affected is invited to join the network, share their story and help prevent future loss.

    Your story is personal and powerful. Meet Tim Ryan. Since his son's death to a heroin overdose in 2014, he has made it his purpose in life to be a part of the solution to America's drug addiction problem.

    Members of the Survivor Advocate Network:
    • Connect with other survivors
    • Share stories of loss
    • Educate communities and influencers on the lifelong impact of these tragedies
    • Give a human dimension to research and statistics
    • Mobilize communities to help keep teens and others safe
  • Join the Survivor Advocate Network

    If you choose to join the Survivor Advocate Network, you can share your story privately or publicly, serve as a local or national spokesperson, or write or speak to decision makers or the media — it’s your choice. You are under no obligation.

    Individually and collectively, our stories help teens, parents, communities and key decision makers understand the need to improve public policies and reduce injuries and fatalities. Participation in the network says your life has been changed and behaviors need to change, too.
