Victoria’s Voice: Our Mission, Her Truth

Discover the inspiring story of Victoria’s Voice Foundation, which emerged from personal tragedy to offer hope and resources to those battling addiction. Learn about our innovative programs designed to dispel myths about addiction, provide access to life-saving medications, and support families. Join us in our mission to change lives for the better.

In 2015, David and Jackie Siegel faced an unimaginable tragedy: their beloved daughter, Victoria, tragically lost her life to a drug overdose. In the wake of this heartbreaking event, the Siegels channeled their grief into action, creating Victoria’s Voice Foundation to prevent other families from experiencing similar heartache.

Victoria’s Voice Foundation is a beacon of hope for individuals and their loved ones battling the stark reality of addiction, offering life-saving resources and promoting understanding about the realities of addiction.

In our mission to spread awareness and combat these misconceptions, we have initiated several programs. Get. Give. Save., for example, aims to provide widespread access to opioid overdose reversal medications like naloxone. This program offers comprehensive toolkits containing valuable resources on recognizing the signs of an opioid overdose, administering naloxone correctly, and finding naloxone locally.

Another widespread myth that we seek to debunk is the idea that prescription medications can’t lead to addiction, a belief which is not only false, but dangerously misleading.

We also understand the importance of supporting individuals battling addiction and their families. To this end, we have developed the Vital Signs program to equip parents, caregivers, and educators with the tools and knowledge to recognize and address early signs of risk and drug use.

The Save Our Kids forum and national live speaker series—formed in collaboration with our partner program, Steered Straight with Michael DeLeon—are other initiatives by our foundation designed to spread awareness and provide education about substance abuse. These offer invaluable insights, tips, and resources for parents and caregivers.

Recognizing that addiction can impact anyone, including incarcerated parents, led us to create our educational One Step Away program. Available in prisons and correctional facilities across the United States, One Step Away provides drug education and life skills training. Through the newly expanded tablet distribution program, over 400,000 inmates have access to this valuable program, supporting parents as they prepare to reenter society as caregivers for their children. Victoria’s Voice Foundation is a collective effort to combat addiction and combat the staggering drug overdose statistics. As we continue to expand our programs and develop new resources, we remain steadfast in our commitment to helping families navigate the complexities of addiction and recovery. Join us as we continue our mission, speak our truth, and change lives for the better.
