Ready, Set, End Addiction
Come alongside at-risk youth and young adults in our community who are actively fighting addiction. Although they are resilient in their fight, they need you to offer strength, support and guidance in this battle for their lives. It’s time for all of us to push back on the devastation of addiction. Here’s how…
Join us in October, Substance Abuse Awareness Month, for the Youth Resiliency Adventure event. Walk, run, or bike, as many miles as you wish, throughout the month to help us raise $75,000 for addiction prevention programming targeting at-risk youth and young adults in our community.
According to www.drugabuse.gov, drug addiction is a preventable disease. Education and outreach are key to helping youth and the general public understand and break free of the risks of drug abuse. Youth.gov, says that prevention strategies targeting the root of the problem are essential to curb drug use and help people lead healthier lives. Early intervention helps prevent substance abuse and reduce the negative consequences of addiction before they occur. In addition, each dollar invested in an evidence-based prevention program can reduce costs related to substance use disorders by an average of $18. According to drugabuse.gov, the estimated overall total costs of substance abuse in the U.S. exceeds $600 billion annually. As staggering as this number is, it does not fully describe the breadth of destructive public health and safety implications of drug abuse and addiction, such as family disintegration, loss of employment, failure in school, domestic violence, and child abuse.
