The Commonwealth Prevention Alliance Campaign to Stop Opiate Abuse

 

The Commonwealth Prevention Alliance Campaign to Stop Opiate Abuse

The U.S. is in the midst of an epidemic of opiate addiction and overdose. Overdose deaths from prescription painkillers have quadrupled since 1999. Deaths from heroin have tripled in the last five years. Pennsylvania has a higher overdose rate than most states.

In Pennsylvania and around the country, opiate addiction affects men and women of all ages, races, and geographic locations.
Anyone can become addicted. Anyone.

Heroin and prescription painkillers (with brand names like Vicodin, Percocet, and Oxycontin) are both opiates. They affect the brain and body in very similar ways. Either one can lead to addiction and overdose.

The Commonwealth Prevention Alliance (CPA ) realizes immediate action needs to be taken to prevent opiate abuse. We believe this website http://pastop.org, and its content, will provide you with increased awareness, education and information on how to seek help.

It is important to know that there are research-based approaches to preventing and treating opiate use.

This website is designed to educate parents, teachers, family members and other caregivers about the risks of prescription painkiller and heroin use, the relationship between prescription painkiller and heroin use, and what to do when you need help.

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.

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.
