Washington Goes Purple is a substance abuse awareness program that will engage our community and youth to stand against substance abuse. We talk to our youth about cigarettes. We talk to our youth about alcohol. We KNOW there is a heroin epidemic. But do we talk to our kids about prescription pain killers?

It’s time to expand the conversation

18% of high school students report taking a prescription drug without a prescription and perceive fewer risks associated with misusing or abusing prescription stimulants than their peers in 2009. We also know that in areas with high percentages of depression, there are high percentages of overdoses. Unfortunately, when an estimated 75-82% of heroin users begin with prescription painkillers, it’s time to talk honestly to them and help #preventaddiction in the future.

  • Prescription painkillers are synthetic heroin and it is important to take as prescribed, lock them up, and properly dispose of unused or unwanted medication. We can help-schedule a drug take back event today!
  • Having an open and honest conversation about addiction and mental health is imperative- the health of our community is important to all of us!
  • NARCAN can save lives!  Let us train you today in a skill you can hopefully never have to use, but can save a life if you do.
  • Join us, our community, and get involved today!

Washington Goes Purple is an important project and your support is greatly appreciated. All contributions are tax-deductible, made through our partner the Community Foundation of Washington County.

If you know someone using or abusing heroin, call 240-313-3310 for free Narcan training.
