Request a Free Naloxone Kit

Building a healthy, drug-free community through education and prevention
Drug Take-Back Day is April 24, and Jodi Salvo discusses safe usage, safe storage, and safe disposal of prescription medication with Rachel Rothacher and Mary Newman. Rachel is from Stark Tusc Wayne Recycling District and Mary is the school nurse at New Philadelphia. These 3 ladies cover many topics that parents and youth alike need to hear.
We discuss pain medication and what pain really is. What does pain tell us about our bodies? What are some alternative pain and discomfort management methods? Pain affects everyone on different levels, so it’s important for parents and adults to properly educate youth about medicine and demonstrate proper usage.
