Stairway to Heroin
Stairway to Heroin has evolved into a model program for education, prevention and recovery used in communities and school districts across the state of Wisconsin and in parts of Illinois with a mission of making a difference in the lives of families. The four-part prevention model is designed to be implemented in schools and communities to address the ongoing substance abuse epidemic adolescents and young adults are facing today.
Contains information for some 13,000 licensed treatment providers that was previously difficult to find. The site streamlines the process and allows for more precise searches, including treatment type (inpatient or telemedicine, for instance), payment options, and whether the treatment will be medication-assisted. There are also educational resources for patients and their families on paying for treatment. The launch of the site is the latest in the federal government’s attempts to curb the opioid epidemic — some 70,000 people in 2017 alone died from drug overdoses, mostly involving opioids.
Operation Prevention is an initiative brought to you by the DEA and Discovery Education to educate middle and high school students about the true impacts of prescription opioid misuse and heroin use.
Wake Up Call
The Wake Up Call training is a 6-hour interactive class that will provide you with the necessary skills and information for implementing a Wake Up Call in your community.
Wake-Up Call is a life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The bedroom identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. Wake Up Call is a valuable resource that should be available in every community and school.
