local resources for those affected by opioid addiction

Whatcom County Health Department needed a source to share education, personal stories, and specific information about treatment options available locally for the growing opioid addiction in Whatcom County. We developed a campaign to direct people to a website containing resources to get help and find more information about opioid addiction.

a resource for those affected by opioid addiction

We developed the WhatcomHope.org website as a user-friendly resource for those suffering from Opioid addiction and friends and family of those who are addicted. The website included a dynamic, interactive map of different locations for getting help or picking up Naloxone.

developing a Facebook campaign

We developed a series of social media images and messages that linked to a number of landing pages that spoke to targeted audiences.

ongoing social media videos

We develop a variety of videos for the campaign on an ongoing basis, including short animations designed to quickly deliver one message.

many voices

We used many voices woven together to tell one story of addiction. Our goal was to communicate the idea that opioid addiction can happen to anyone and there are ways to get help.

accessible materials

All print materials were translated and produced in English, Spanish, and Russian to help reach these populations.
