May is National Mental Health Awareness Month and this year's theme is Where to Start: Mental Health in a Changing World. Thanks to MHA and NAMI for many of these resources. And remember, if you're in crisis, please contact the 988 Lifeline immediately.

Spotlight on Collaboration

DPR is a New Facing Addiction with NCADD Affiliate!

Late last year, DPR applied for local affiliate status with the national change-maker organization Facing Addiction with NCADD and we were accepted.

We join a select group of prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery non-profits on the national front lines of all issues related to substance use disorder, and specifically, in addressing the opioid crisis. 

As a new Facing Addiction with NCADD affiliate, DPR brings its core objective of collaboration into prominent focus. Collaboration, along with innovation, education and advocacy, are how we strive each day to create a drug-free generation. 

Listen to these words, “Facing Addiction with NCADD is dedicated to turning the tide on America’s addiction epidemic, unifying the voices of the 45 million American families directly affected. Our vision is to prevent and reduce the human and social costs of addiction every year until this crisis is eliminated.”

DPR staff will travel to Arlington, VA in the spring for the 2019 Conference of Affiliates. The brain trust of the 90+ member affiliates is enormous. We can’t wait to share what we learn!
