Opioid Abuse Awareness
Opioids are a class of drugs commonly used to reduce pain.  75% of opioid misuse starts with people using medication that wasn’t prescribed for them.  Simple steps, like safe storage and disposal can prevent these powerful medications be diverted or misused.   Visit Washington state’s Starts with One website for resources on combating the opioid crisis.
