RALI CARES Virtual Experience Featured in National Day of Service

As a part of the inaugural festivities this month, RALI partner the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) participated in the Biden-Harris National Day of Service to help combat the opioid crisis across the U.S. CADCA hosted a virtual event to discuss their work to address addiction across the nation, provide a safe disposal demo and give a virtual tour of the RALI CARES educational trailer. The Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative partnered with Code 3 to bring the RALI CARES program to communities across the U.S. The RALI CARES trailer is outfitted to look like a young adult’s bedroom, but it is filled with hidden warning signs of substance misuse. Former law enforcement and experts point out the red flags of substance misuse based on their years of experience and discuss ways to seek help if someone is struggling with addiction.

And COVID-19 continues to present more challenges as we fight to keep our communities safe. RALI and our partners are hopeful that the Biden administration will prioritize addressing this crisis. We hope the new administration, new Congress, and state and local leaders will join all of us in communities across the country to educate the public about this critical issue and direct resources to those who need them. Together, we can end the opioid crisis.
