Stop Opiate Abuse Campaign

Materials are available to educate parents, teachers, and family members and other caregivers about:

  • risks of prescription painkiller and heroin use
  • relationship between prescription painkiller and heroin use, and
  • what to do when you need help


CPA has received 2 years of grant support from the 

PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency 

to fund our campaign

CPA and our workgroup partners continue to develop FREE materials about opiate addiction and drug-abuse prevention that drug and alcohol professionals, including those involved with prevention coalitions, may download and distribute.
