Do Your Part to Fight Opioid Addiction


Think about your own actions and make the changes needed.  That was the message members of PFRW heard at the 93rd PFRW Convention on Saturday.  Special Agent Janene Holter challenged attendees to change their behavior to prevent addiction in their families, create safe homes and avoid personal opioid issues.

Some highlights:

  • Take all your meds out of your medicine cabinet or any other place where family and friends access during visits.
  • Lock up your drugs, opioids or not.  Pill or “pharming” parties are popular and users are taking anything they can find.
  • Break the habit of sharing your medical concerns and medications information with others.  Addicts listen and identify possible sources to burglarize.
  • 80,000 Pennsylvania grandparents are raising their grandchildren due to the opioid epidemic.
  • Pennsylvania is #2 in the country in heroin overdose deaths.
