    If you’re viewing this page, please know you are not alone. Opioid addiction is an epidemic that has spread across this state and throughout the nation. A recent report found that nearly 4 in 10 (39%) of residents in the Commonwealth know someone who has misused prescription painkillers in the past five years.* When prescription opioids become unavailable, some turn to heroin. Addiction has torn apart far too many of our families and has killed far too many of our loved ones.

    The goal of this website is to give you information on how to prevent and identify opioid misuse and where to go for help. You are not alone. Together, we can stop addiction in its tracks.
