Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. visited Sky View Middle School Monday morning to present an anti-drug program that debuted in Worcester County a few months ago.
The program, including the short film “This is (Not) About Drugs,” was designed by Overdose Lifeline, Inc., and is presented by the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office in its prevention and intervention efforts.
According to the Overdose Lifeline website (https://goo.gl/qGRBVk), the program helps “raise awareness to the risks of misusing prescription opioids. How misusing prescription opioids can lead to addiction, heroin use and overdose. The lesson encourages students to make good choices and provides the student with skills to combat peer pressure, gain support, and resources for making decisions about their own body and health.”
