About Emily's Hope

    About Emily's Hope

    Emily Groth was a talented artist who tragically died at the age of 21 of fentanyl poisoning. Emily was born and raised in Sioux Falls and was a 2015 graduate of O'Gorman High School. She was a gifted student and participated in cheerleading, gymnastics and track. Emily was passionate about her art and was a prolific painter, winning awards and recognition for her work.

    Emily's family was in the process of organizing an intervention to get her into treatment after realizing something "wasn't right." Ironically, she was scheduled to be checked into a treatment center three days following her death.

    Emily's death on May 16, 2018 was a shock to her family who did not realize she was injecting heroin. The dose Emily used that day, unbeknownst to her, was laced with enough fentanyl to kill several people.

    In coping with the loss of their beautiful daughter and sister, Emily's family has vowed to do everything possible to give others hope of recovery from addiction.

    Emily's Hope will help offset the cost of treatment and allow more people struggling with addiction to get the help they need. Removing financial barriers and getting people suffering from addiction into proper treatment is the first step toward restoration, not only of the addict, but of the addict's entire family.
