The current opioid epidemic is the deadliest drug crisis in American history. Overdoses, fueled by opioids, are the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old — killing roughly 64,000 people last year, more than guns or car accidents, and doing so at a pace faster than the H.I.V. epidemic did at its peak.

The Know Drugs Prevention School Tour is designed to inform students on the life altering dangers of drug usage, introduce students to the community members with triumphant stories of overcoming adversity, and to inspire students to commit to being the very best version of themselves.
