Changing the treatment paradigm.

The current treatment model is broken. It’s time to make a change. Born from Dr. Stephen Loyd’s personal addiction fight and passion for helping others like him, SeventyX7 aims to be the premier resource for opioid education, awareness, and application. Deriving from the Biblical model of forgiveness, we believe everyone deserves a chance at a healthy, drug-free life no matter how many times it takes. Whether you’re an organization looking for your next keynote speaker, a treatment facility wishing to improve your processes, or a parent whose child is suffering from addiction, SeventyX7 is here for you.

    Harry, Tricky Dick, and the Duke

    Harry J. Anslinger. Richard Nixon. Ronald Reagan.

    Harry, Tricky Dick, and the Duke. These three men shaped our modern culture, and they unwittingly exacerbated the issue that has grown into the opioid crisis.

    In order to understand today's crisis, we need to understand where it came from. The biggest obstacle to overcoming the opioid crisis is stigma. This stigma is rooted in our history, going all the way back to the early 20th century, when it was criminalized on a large scale in the United States.

    Addiction is treatable, treatment works, and people recover.
