What Is Your DNA-Drug Narcotic Awareness Profile?
Health Outreach Prevention Education (H.O.P.E.)
Any Sarasota county family can be affected by the dangers of opioid usages, such as an overdose. That is why we all have a responsibility in preventing and eliminating harmful opioid use and the risks through education and conversations.
Having open and honest conversations with the people in your life about opioids can help you build a supportive environment where prevention education, hope, and recovery are all possible.
