Fight the Pain Campaign was developed by Aurore Henze of Michigan Health star in collaboration with Judge Linda Davis of FAN (a national organization to decriminalize addiction, support families and stop the opiate epidemic) to educate, support and honor those in our community that are fighting to stop the epidemic as well. This new initiative is called FANstar.
In 2015, the U.S. government pushed for the medical community to limit prescriptions to opiates. Instead of helping the problem, it’s catapulted the heroin epidemic. Latest statistics show that someone dies from opiate addiction/overdose every 11 seconds!
This initiative is a 2 fold approach:
- Give individuals in healthcare and businesses the tools to recognize, prevent and even change the epidemic.
- Honor and promote those individuals that have joined the Fight the Pain Campaign and become FANstar approved.

What is involved with the education?
You will be contacted no more than a few times a year with emails about updates in the community about opiate awareness, new government guidelines, pain alternatives, events and opportunities.
I have a busy practice, how much time is this going to take?
Not long at all! A short interview, a few emails and opportunities to participate or not is all that is required. We are looking for committed, ethical people that care. Ask about incentives, as some of the protocols are very lucrative and simple for medical doctors to put in place! Of course, any participation will get a warm reception from the community, peers and patients.
