CHANGE the SCRIPT

LET’S CHANGE THE SCRIPT.

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.



3 KEY FACTS ABOUT OPIOIDS

  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.

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
