A Life Of Kayos :
My Opioid Journey through Hell , Hope & Healing
Growing up in PA, I was a fashion model, living well with a top-notch new job, the most expensive clothes, many friends, and an amazing social calendar. But at 27 I had an accident and started using prescription opioids for pain without being educated of the risks. What began as treatment became a decade of deception and disaster as I joined the millions of casualties in the opioid epidemic. My fall was the start of addiction and substance use disorder. My determination was the start of opioid recovery and is now my desire to serve the community and bring hope to those personally struggling or loving someone struggling with addiction and opioid abuse.

“The rock bottom moment for me was total isolation,” she said. “I basically was sitting in my truck in a parking lot and realized that either I had to choose life or death.”
Ellis chose life. And since quitting and recovering, she has become an author and nationwide advocate.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
These are some of the wonderful things our clients are saying about Chase No More
“The word “remarkable” is bandied around a lot, but when it comes to Chekesha “Kay” Ellis, it is truly the case- perhaps even a bit of an understatement. Her passion and advocacy for people who suffer from opioid use disorder is unflagging—she will speak to any one or groups suffering; warn all of the dangers of prescription opioids; and is relentless in pursuing resources for women everywhere in the grip of this disease. Her openness in sharing her story in Attention Must Be Paid: Women Lost in the Opioid Crisis as a woman of color, with a disability, is an inspiration for all. I know if there’s ANYONE I would want on my team, it’s Kay Ellis.”

“I first met Chekesha when she came to the hospital where I work for CT scan. I learned she was having the scan prior to her cochlear implant procedure.She was totally when she came into the hospital.She could not hear anything.I had to write everything. Chekesha returned a few other times for follow up scans and it was during those visits I learned how she lost her hearing and that she would hear her son’s voice for the first time after undergoing the procedure. I received an email regarding one of Chekesha’s speaking events, I promised I would go, and I did. I must say I was completely blown away! Her message one of sadness and triumph.Despair and Healing. A story that must be told.”
