PA STOP WORKGROUP

Funded through a generous grant from the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD), and together with our workgroup partners, we have developed free materials about opiate addiction for D&A professionals to download and distribute, as well as information and resources for anyone looking for HELP.

Goal:

PA Stop is designed to educate Pennsylvanians about the risks of prescription painkiller and heroin use, the relationship between painkiller and heroin use, and what to do when you need help. We are working to prevent non-medical use of prescription painkillers and, in so doing, to break the connection between heroin and prescription painkillers. Together, we can stop opiate addiction before it starts.
