I plan to expose not only the dangers but the new epidemic of opioids that has made its way into the school system and local communities. Part of the solution is to hold our parents accountable by making them aware of what current dangers are in their homes. Most times parents are not aware of the signs their children may be displaying if they were introduced to drugs. I also want to provide a list of resources for any help that may be needed for existing drug abuse.
