Taking Their Message to Washington D.C.


On March 22, 2017 the Doerhoff family traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with the United States Drug Enforcement Administrator, Mr. Chuck Rosenberg. The William Christian Doerhoff Memorial Foundation-Executive Director, Scott Doerhoff shared with Mr. Rosenberg their family’s personal loss of their son, Will and echoed the loss and pain of the thousands of families who have lost loved ones to the nation’s opiate epidemic.  In full support of the DEA, the Doerhoff family agreed with Mr. Rosenberg that this issue will take all stakeholders working together to end the death spiral. Mr. Rosenberg, speaking of the Foundation’s awareness campaign, Speak Up-Speak Out- stated “while difficult to quantify in numbers of how many, I can tell you, this program will save lives.”
