Opioid Resources

Support Before, During, and After the Summit

PRISM's goal is to provide everyone with educational resources that prepare and inform them for everyday interactions with the Opioid Epidemic in their home or community.
On the day of the Summit, we will give attendees a physical copy of our resource guide which will include information and articles from sponsors, presenters, vendors, and more. In the meantime, we will use this space to share statistics and a variety of educational elements.

What can you do to help those impacted by the Opioid Epidemic?

Dispose of any unused prescription drugs

This is one of the most common ways people are able to access prescription medications that they should not be taking. You can find more information about Drug Take Back Boxes in North Carolina here.

Lock up Medications that you need

Any medications that you may still need to take should be properly secured so that they cannot accidentally or intentionally be taken by someone else.

Talk to your kids about the risk of misusing medications

The danger of illicit drugs has been known and explained for years, but since many addicted to opioids are prescribed them, it’s important to explain how misuse can occur and what the potential results will be.

Call 911 and Encourage others to do the same if they observe an overdose

With NC’s Good Samaritan Law, you do not need to fear arrest for reporting an opioid overdose. Administered quickly, Naloxone can reverse the life-threatening risks of an overdose and save a life.

Attend Events & Support Organizations working to end the Opioid Epidemic

In addition to The People’s Opioid Summit, there are many events in North Carolina and around the country devoted to helping those who are addicted to Opioids, and to end the Epidemic altogether. One such event is the Walk For Hope, which will take place on October 11, 2020.
