Journey to Healing Hearts.

NOPE of Hillsborough is proud to offer a support group for anyone who has lost a loved one or friend to any drug or alcohol-related incident. Members come together to share their experiences of how they cope with the grief they carry from their loss. We exist to lend support – no one should walk alone with their grief. The group is non-professional and free to participants.


CANCELED FOR 4/11/20 Please join us on the 2nd Saturday of every month at 12 noon as we offer support to those who have lost loved ones to drug or alcohol abuse. Location is: 2815 E Henry Ave B-1, Tampa, FL 33610.

Annual Candle Light Vigil

In memory of those lost to drug and alcohol related incidents and with hope for those suffering from the disease of addiction, NOPE Hillsborough holds an Annual Candle Light Vigil during every Red Ribbon Week. As intended when NOPE National Task Force created the nationwide event in 2007, the NOPE Vigil sheds light on the consequences our nation faces with the use of illegal and illicit drugs. We strive to reduce the stigma surrounding the disease of addiction so that those suffering may openly seek help.
