Eastern Hancock High School Learns About the Risks of Prescription Pain Medicine and Heroin

Thank you to Neighborhoods Against Substance Abuse and Eastern Hancock High School for allowing Overdose Lifeline to visit today and share some important and life saving information.
“I learned that drugs can really mess up someone’s life. More than anyone thinks in the first place, but listening to someone describe how hard it was to get through hit me in ways that are indescribable.” -Student
After 20 classes, 20 presentations the entire Eastern Hancock High School student body learned these important, life saving messages:

  1. Prescription Pain Pills = Heroin, both are Opioids and highly addictive and dangerous
  2. Heroin and prescription pills are rarely the starting point –  First is marijuana, alcohol and other drugs 
  3. When you use opioids and heroin, you lose your ability to choose
  4. You can become addicted and you can overdose with just 1 use, with the 2nd, the 3rd , etc. You cannot control this, nor can you predict it.
