National Prevention Week: How You Can Participate
It’s understandable that we’re focused on the deadly virus that is creating a host of problems in every city in the US today. However, it may be beneficial to think about something else for a few days. With that idea in mind, why not take a few minutes to learn about National Prevention Week. You may find that you have some free time these days and can participate in this public education event.
Drug addiction didn’t go away because we stopped paying attention. But, amid the challenges and fears imposed on our nation by COVID-19, many people are focused on those issues only. In fact, it seems to be the only thing newsworthy today. Unfortunately, drug-related problems continue to cause needless deaths across the country, regardless of the virus. For that reason, we want to tell you about National Prevention Week.
National Prevention Week (NPW) is an annual event sponsored by SAMHSA. Each year, communities and organizations work together to increase awareness about substance use and prevention. This year’s event is scheduled for May 10th through the 16th. Their goal is to promote prevention by providing ideas, tools, and resources that encourage people to take action and contribute to the cause.
