After losing Victoria to a drug overdose in 2015, David and Jackie Siegel dedicated themselves to understanding how this tragedy came to pass. In doing so, they learned a great deal about the recognizable signs of risk and substance abuse in youth– the very signs they either missed, misunderstood, or underestimated in Victoria.

Although they cannot change their story of loss, David and Jackie have created the Vital Signs program to save other families from experiencing a similar tragedy.
