The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is proud to be working with the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, on an innovative new program to help local parents and families impacted by the opioid crisis.
The Partnership has been tapped by Media Planet USA as recurring contributors on adolescent substance use, working together on articles that bring awareness to important issues affecting society today.
David Sheff, journalist and The New York Times best-selling author of “Beautiful Boy” and “Clean,” was our guest host for our very first Facebook Live Thursday, June 16. He shared his personal story of being the father of a child who has struggled with substance use, read an excerpt from his book, and answered our community’s questions.
With 144 people dying from a drug overdose each day in the U.S., the country is facing a public health crisis that is tearing millions of families apart. The Partnership has been on the frontlines of this issue for more than 30 years. Today, the organization announced its priority to support families who need help for a loved one, unveiling a new website customized for a parent’s journey in addressing their child’s substance use.
