To raise awareness of the drug abuse problem in our community, Union College has put together a team of story providers and story writers to help share real-life experiences of what addiction can do. These real-life experiences are currently being compiled into one booklet that will be distributed.

In the book, there will be stories of youth who have seen how drugs can wreck a family. Stories of addicts who were humbled by life changing moments, and as a result able to kick their using habits. There are stories of convicted felons, and a grandmother who has watched drugs ruin her child’s life. Even a story from a pharmacist who has seen the industry change before her very eyes due to prescription drug abuse.

This book is currently in the design process, and will be released soon. Check back often to hear more news on our project as it develops.
