Join Our Mission To Strengthen The Las Vegas Community

The Mission of Vegas Stronger is to focus the Spirit of Las Vegas on reversing devastation caused to our community by the Opioid Epidemic. We facilitate that restoration to wholeness for individuals, families and society at large by creating awareness and providing access to both state of the art and historically reliable remedies.

What is Vegas Stronger?

Utilizing our network of community partners, Vegas Stronger will unite medication, therapeutic treatment, case management, housing and work training, along with a wide variety of social services to create an effective web we are certain will greatly diminish detrimental impacts from the opioid epidemic.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

- Margaret Mead, anthropologist, recipient of the Planetary Citizen of the Year Award in 1978.

Our Credo

Our Credo is based on the principle that change is optimally effectuated when our Community is fully engaged in pulling together toward the desired outcome.  All Las Vegans, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or any other demographic factor, deserve the opportunity to live a fully productive life free from addiction to opioids of every sort.  Interventions required to achieve this outcome will include non-opioid-based medication assisted treatment, behavioral therapy, safe housing, case management as well as occupational and vocational training.  In addition to those factors we also recognize the crucial healing role of nutrition, physical fitness, spirituality and fellowship. Vegas Stronger is dedicated to full facilitation and integration in the delivery of these remedies.

Our Vision

Our Vision is that through the application of our Credo, every opioid addicted person will be provided an easily accessible pathway to seek out, find and live their own best life through an individualized recovery process.

Vegas Stronger Founder

Our Founders

Our Founders, Dave Marlon, Tom Skancke and John Seeland aim to unite the Las Vegas community and bring solution-oriented action to bear on the challenges we face in battling the scourge of opioid addiction.  Nothing could be more important than saving and improving the life of even one woman, man or baby afflicted by the opioid epidemic. The repercussions and reverberation of each such result will multiply and impact myriads within and beyond our locality. 

Our Partners


In order to achieve the desired outcome – that every opioid addicted person will be provided an easily accessible pathway to seek out, find and live their own best life through an individualized recovery process – a robust hub-and-spoke network of community partners will be required.  

Every Dollar Makes a Difference

Facilitating, providing and coordinating all these services will require funding.  Vegas Stronger is a privately funded charity focused on reducing opiate addiction in Las Vegas.  We will access grants as well as accept private donations. But above all, we will ensure all funding comes from, and is allocated to, sources that are consistent with our Mission, Credo and Vision.
