Deviatefrom Denial

Aboutdeviate from denial

In 2021, over 100,000 people died from an opioid overdose. The crisis continues.

To help combat this growing epidemic, author Sam Perez’s parents made a decision that changed her family’s life forever. In 2017, they opened DV8 Kitchen in Lexington, Kentucky. The restaurant and bakery cooks up life-changing food for more than one reason: not only does it serve mouth-watering cinnamon rolls; it hires people in recovery from substance use disorder.

Sam watched as her parents’ passion for both the restaurant industry and for serving others merged. She saw the positive impact, met people with different perspectives, and learned from them. From that, Deviate From Denial: Erasing the Stigma of Addiction and Recovery Through Inspirational Stories was created.

A percentage of the proceeds benefits the DV8 Kitchen Vocational Training Foundation, Inc.
