Recreational use of prescription drugs is a serious problem with teens & young adults. National studies show that a teen is more likely to have abused a prescription drug than an illegal street drug. Many teens think prescription drugs are safe because they were prescribed by a doctor. But taking them for non-medical use to get high or “self-medicate” can be just as dangerous & addictive as taking illegal street drugs. StopPopping.org is building a prescription drug awareness program to bring this message to the schools & Universities across the country & would like your help to do so. The Show is a 1 hour plus multimedia presentation aimed at today’s youth to instill in them the seriousness of Prescription Drug Abuse. Its based on testimonials from Pill addiction survivors & victims with only months to live. We will include both celebrities & every day Americans who have fallen to this addiction proving that no one is immune to being a victim of addiction. This is a fact filled hard hitting in your face presentation hosted by a staff comprised of persons who have lost friends & family to this National Tragedy. Some of the images are medically graphic & could be upsetting to younger or sheltered viewers, but necessary to show the true dangers. This show will be on the road, traveling in your region, bringing your company image along side the shows message to nearly 1 million people a year in the Jr & Sr High Schools, Colleges & Universities as well as corporate events.
We provide assistance to persons who are seeking treatment for their opiate addiction but fall through the cracks in the system. Cracks like they have the wrong type of insurance or no insurance at all or they are told that their problem is not severe enough for them to qualify for treatment of their opiate addiction and are now forced to fight their addiction alone.
By our 5th years we intend to rehab old hotel/motels and convert them to a living residence for those who have completed treatment and need a safe living environment with an onsite counselor and security.
