Unfortunately, Shelby’s story is not uncommon. Whether drug abuse is enabled through illegal means or legal means, the outcomes can be tragic. Our law enforcement partners are well aware of the problems, as they are often called to the scene of harmful situations only to find drug misuse as a contributing factor or cause.
Together, we can all do our part to prevent drug related impairment, including death from overdose. Parents, prescribing physicians, teens, law enforcement and non-profits like the PDMP Foundation all play a role. But together, we can make a measurable difference in lives like Shelby’s, which end up leading to the right path for a productive and happy future.
Thanks for your support!
