Opioid Abuse Awareness & Strategies

Opioid Abuse Prevention

Pay attention.  This is serious stuff.

The Lake Washington School District PTSA and members of the Kirkland Fire/Police Departments and Northwest University are putting on an Opioid Abuse and Prevention Strategies Panel Discussion on Tuesday, January 29th (7:15 – 8:30 PM) in the LWHS Theater.

The goal is to provide awareness that opioid abuse knows no social boundaries and can impact any family.  And also to share direct, meaningful and actionable strategies for parents to communicate with their children.  The panel members, including the father of a LWHS grad who was lost to a heroin overdose, all have experience with the pain and suffering opioid misuse brings. 

For more information, contact Vince Armfield at vince@lakesidechristian.net or Irene Neumann, Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Chair, LWHS PTSA at FACE@lwhsptsa.org.

I attended this much needed and extremely informative discussion. Opioids are a huge epidemic in Kirkland, this place should have been packed with people. I hope the lack of attendees is not a sign of denial or “I know enough.” The information sessions are where the people should be showing up to prevent yet again another memorial in Kirkland.
