Drug addiction is an insidious disease. Whether or not it has impacted you or those you love, there are essential things you can do to encourage greater awareness of the issues, initiate dialogue with those who may be at risk, promote safe medication use, and prevent improper access to drugs.

If we come together as a community, we can make a difference.
