As we mark over a year-and-a-half battling the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine distributions are providing hope across the country. We’re doubling down on the fight against COVID-19.
RALI NM and our partners are also doubling down on our continued efforts to address the opioid crisis in communities throughout the state. As we continue to share available resources and educate communities about the importance of preventing substance misuse, we will also be marking this Saturday, October 23rd as National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
As we continue to socially distance, we can still all take proactive steps to protect our communities by safely disposing of old or unneeded medications in our medicine cabinets. With your help, we can fight addiction, support recovery, and help bring an end the opioid crisis.
