While I don't share all the views expressed in this article it does reinforce how serious the opioid epidemic really is!
We simply must do more in the area of prevention, treatment, and recovery.
I recently found my daughter dead in her apartment in downtown Langley from an accidental overdose. The coroner listed cause of death as a large amount of fentanyl. To be clear it’s is not an overdose, Fentanyl poisoning killed my daughter. #opioidcrisis
This year has been full of challenges, but despair is not the end of this story because in a season with a lot of talk, you can take action against #HumanTrafficking.
Join us on #GivingTuesday as we share stories of survivors and cast a vision for how YOU can join the fight.
The mission of the HCSAC is to collaborate with law enforcement, local governments, service and community organizations, youths, health care professionals, schools, parents, and individuals to take actions which will reduce substance abuse and related social problems among youths and adults.
Our focus is to help coordinate community efforts and provide education and prevention services to the youth and adults of Hood County.
The HCSAC is a coalition of community volunteers dedicated to the prevention of youth and adult substance abuse and supporting treatment services for those who need it. It does not provide direct services to clients.
We work to confront youth substance use by educating our community, mobilizing resources, developing collaborations & advocating for sound public policy.
If we can change people’s knowledge about drugs and alcohol, change their skills in resisting the pressure, and their attitude toward substance use, we can change their behaviors and create a healthier community. That’s what HCSAC is all about!
The Hood County Substance Abuse Council works to create a healthier community by educating about drugs, alcohol, and substance abuse.
