Upcoming

The Liberty Crew will be looking into expanding our speaking engagements to include religious institutions in addition to schools and the general public.

We will be investigating the distribution of and training in the life-saving drug Naloxone. Naloxone is a life-saving medication that is used to block the effects of opioids during an overdose.

Ongoing – The Liberty Crew participated in awareness events at various schools in the area in order to further our mission of substance abuse awareness and prevention.

October – The Liberty Crew hosted a table in the business expo at the annual Calabasas Pumpkin Festival event. We featured rock painting for kids and provided information to parents.

July – We attended the annual July 4 Liberty Canyon parade and passed out literature and wrist bands, painted faces, and talked to residents about substance abuse.

May – The Isaac family was very honored to be part of a documentary titled: “Who we Are,” that addressed the opioid epidemic and featured the Isaac family.  The film was created by a very talented group of USC Masters students. The film will be posted here in the near future.

The Isaac family is very grateful for all the kind words and support they have received. The CBS segment was a 4 minute “awareness” piece and was edited from approximately 45 minutes of interviews. After viewing the segment, it was apparent that the awareness piece did not include some important messages made during the interviews.

The family would like to emphasize the following points:

* Heroin use is tragic regardless of the community or age group that it strikes.
*Areas that had not seen a heroin epidemic are now seeing it in their areas and it is affecting younger people. In that sense, the “face of heroin use has changed”.
* The parents vigorously dealt with their son’s situation, including the use of marijuana, and never condoned it.
