There Is No Hero In Heroin Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation substance use disorder causes to families. We envision a world where fewer lives are lost and help exists for the millions of Americans affected by substance use disorder. We at TINHIH Las Vegas strive to be a support system by referring, educating, and assisting the general public on all aspects of substance use disorder. We have relationships with organizations in Las Vegas to help get you the help you need, either for the addict or family members.

Our Goals





Upcoming Events

In the last ten years, TINHIH has become a leader in the recovery community as well as a vocal advocate for sustainable recovery programs at the local, state and federal level. TINHIH’s banner achievement is the vision and driving force of CCSD’s Mission High School in downtown Las Vegas which opened in the Fall of 2017. Mission High School is recognized as the first entirely public-funded, recovery-focused school of its kind in the nation. Subsequently the Alternative Peer Group was formed and is now a stand alone entity that supports students in recovery. TINHIH most recently launched outpatient services treatment center for youth and adults.

Jan Nargi

TINHIH Founder

Janice Nargi, a single mother of two, was a registered nurse in Tucson, AZ who worked in enough ER’s to know the signs of substance use disorder but failed to recognize them in her own son. Through her popular blog and published book, There is No Hero in Heroin, she exposed the reality of teenage substance use disorder, allowing other families to benefit and learn from her experience. Las Vegas resident Joe Engle would come to know all too well the nightmare that Jan wrote about.

Our Mission

The mission of the There is No Hero in Heroin Foundation is to promote awareness, educate the public and encourage those struggling with substance use disorder and those who love them. We are dedicated to raising the curtain on the epidemic of substance use/co-occurring mental health disorders in our schools, the scarcity of rehabilitation programs, and the need for quality federally and state funded recovery community organizations (RCOs). There is no hero in heroin, only those who overcome.
