Early intervention is all about education. While we would like to magically appear in front of every person with a synthetic substance in their hand and tell them exactly what they are about to take and why it is a terrible idea, unfortunately Facebook hasn’t launched that function … yet. While we can’t physically be there, our drug education program has been developed with unforgettable content that is confronting, memorable, and educational. We leave a lasting impression that will hopefully be there when someone is offered a synthetic substance to take.
The real consequences of drug use are not talked about enough. The lasting effects that impact lives forever and whole communities that are affected every day – this stuff is as important as the latest drug seizure or celebrity that has gone off the rails. Mental illness, psychosis, job loss, community safety, family abuse, a feeling of isolation and disconnect; synthetic drugs have a whole bag of tricks that we need to start spreading the message about.
