        Accessibility | Tragedy & Hope

        In this segment of "Tragedy & Hope," students learn that the ease of finding, obtaining, and concealing the abuse of prescription pain pills is part of what makes them so dangerous. This is because by the time the abuse is noticed, a tolerance to them has often built up, and a serious problem with addiction has begun. Without any telltale smell, the use of pills is easier to conceal than alcohol or marijuana. People can get pills through the prescriptions of others, from friends, at house parties, or their own family members. They also may go to different doctors and pharmacies for different prescriptions. This is a problem that exists everywhere, not just in the city or the suburbs.

        Parent Advocacy

        In this video segment from Tragedy & Hope, we will learn about some of the efforts parents have made towards removing some of the barriers that may prevent a parent or the individual seeking help. Along with other parents, Colleen has created a website where important information can be found all in one place. Avi Isreal has started the, Save the Michaels, organization and stresses that parents need to talk to their children not just about alcohol and tobacco but about prescription painkillers and opiates. It is generally agreed that too often good kids with a lot of potential are being lost to addiction and these drugs are robbing them of everything; and too often their lives.
