The Opioid Crisis Action Network (OCAN) was founded in January 2018 by Heather and Larry Arata after the overdose death of their 23 year old son, Brendan, to educate the public about solutions to this health emergency and provide grants to pay for the treatment of those suffering from substance use disorder.

The Opioid Crisis Action Network (OCAN) is a non-profit group that educates voters about which candidates from all political parties support public policies focused on mandating that those suffering from substance use disorder receive medical best practice treatment covered by private insurance companies, Medicaid and Medicare. OCAN will also write grants for those suffering from substance use disorder who cannot afford treatment. Checks will be written to state certified treatment centers.
