Narcan (naloxone) is an opiate antidote. Opioids include heroin and prescription pain pills such as oxycodone, codeine and morphine. Narcan is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose.



We all know that drugs such as opioids are destroying people’s lives.

Change the Script aims to connect people who are affected by the crisis: healthcare professionals, treatment professionals, friends and family, and the public. By providing resources, Change the Script, will help rewrite the story about how we deal with this issue.


  1. Knowledge is power. The more you know about opioids the better. Because you can do more for anyone who is struggling with them.
  2. People crisis need support. People addicted to opioids have a serious medical condition that requires understanding.
  3. Opioid misuse is a medical condition that requires medical solutions. Talk to your doctor openly and honestly. He or she can help with different approaches to managing pain, treatment options, and medical planning.

ADAP sponsers Michael Fowlin as Spring Speaker at Weston High School

“Your pain is your gift,” actor and psychologist Michael Fowlin told Weston High School students recently.

“I would say in this community you’re told not to acknowledge your pain,” Fowlin said. “Most of you here wear a mask.”

Fowlin spoke to the students on April 7 in a talk sponsored by the Alcohol Drug and Awareness Program (ADAP) through a grant from the Mid-Fairfield Substance Abuse Coalition. The coalition has designated ADAP of Weston, a non-profit, as its Local Prevention Council.

Do You Have Children Going To College? Save the Date March 18 for HAZE and discussion with Michelle Albright, PhD, Director of Weston Youth Services

hazeSave the date on March 18, 2015 to see HAZE, a powerful documentary, at the Weston Public Library at 7 pm.
Afterwards, join Michelle Albright, PhD, Director of Weston Youth Services. Michelle will facilitate a discussion after the film.

This program is a must see for ALL parents and their children who are Juniors and Seniors.

What’s it about: In September, 2004, pledge Gordie Bailey died from alcohol poisoning after passing out on a couch in his fraternity house following a hazing initiation. HAZE, which has been shown in hundreds of high schools, tells Gordies story and connects the dots between college drinking and hazing.

This film has been purchased by ADAP from money raised from its spring fundraiser, “Rides for Lives,” which was sponsored by ADAP, Safe Rides and WHS Student Government.


ADAP, Weston Youth Services, WHS PTO, and the Weston Public Library are co-sponsoring the event.
