Narconon Suncoast Attends National Prevention Summit

By: Get News
Narconon Suncoast, a Florida based addiction treatment program attends addiction recovery, empowerment, and prevention event in St. Petersburg, Florida.

In the state of Florida, there more than 3,000 deaths every year that are directly related to substance abuse. This number is significantly higher than the national average and is a serious cause for concern for the safety and well-being of Florida’s citizens. Florida is also the second-highest state in the nation in overdose deaths after California. 

The nightmare of addiction can only be combated by community unification, awareness, and support. It is on this foundation that a transformative event, the National Prevention Summit, was born. This advocacy event presents a powerful vision. It is an opportunity for community members, medical professionals, families, and individuals to gather and create awareness about substance abuse and the devastation that addiction causes. 

The National Prevention Summit

The National Prevention Summit was held at the beautiful Tradewinds resort on St. Petersburg Beach. The event was co-hosted by the Drug Free America Foundation, Inc. This year’s mission was to implement prevention strategies, and help communities advocate for sound drug policies.
