Family Toolkit

The national rise in prescription painkiller and heroin use has hit Virginia particularly hard. Parents and caregivers need information. Fortunately, there are research-based approaches to preventing and treating opiate use.

The Family Toolkit has information about safe disposal of medications, overdose prevention, and how to seek effective treatment for you or your loved ones. Please feel free to reference the materials for your personal use or to distribute to others who need it.
