174 a Day - #FamiliesSpeakUp

Our Action Plan to Address the Opioid Epidemic
On the heels of the White House’s declaration of a nationwide public health emergency and the final report of the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and Opioid Crisis, we have outlined our solutions to help address the opioid epidemic.

Take a look at our detailed, four-point plan to help end this health crisis and empower families to take action. Join the conversation at #FamilesSpeakUp.
Help Us Continue to Empower Families:
Responding to Overdose with Naloxone
Our new resource, available in English and Spanish, explains how to use the emergency medication naloxone (also known by the brand name Narcan) to save a life.

In case of an overdose to opioids (which includes heroin and prescription pain medication such as Vicodin, OxyContin, Percocet), naloxone can reverse the overdose.
Vaping with a vape pen
MTF Survey: Almost One-Third of High School Seniors Used Vaping Device in Past Year
According to The National Institutes of Health’s Monitoring the Future (MTF) Study, electronic vaping has become more popular among teens, with one-third of high school seniors reporting using some kind of vaping device in the past year. The substances teens are vaping range from nicotine to marijuana to “just flavoring.”

Our President Fred Muench, said “teens might not fully understand that vaping is, in fact, just as addictive as smoking, but with unknown long-term health consequences. The research shows that teens are likely to move on to smoking regular cigarettes after vaping — making it critical for parents to educate themselves and stay on top of the latest trends in teen substance use in order to empower their kids from making harmful choices.”
