IGA Cares: Partnership for Drug-Free Kids

Better Choices for you and your family begin with awareness—awareness of opportunities  for overall well-being, yes, but also of the “hard to talk about” issues that can derail a healthy and happy lifestyle. Substance use is one of those issues facing our nation fueled by the opioid epidemic.

Drugs now kill more people than car accidents. And with 90 percent of addiction starting in the teen years, families just like yours are locked in a daily struggle with their son or daughter’s substance use.

That’s why IGA is joining forces with Partnership for Drug-Free Kids to provide answers and resources to help families struggling with substance use in your community and across the nation.
