The RALI CARES program educates parents and adults about warning signs of substance misuse
September 6, 2022
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Bernardino, CA – On Tuesday, September 6th, the Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) partnered with the Code 3 Association to bring the RALI CARES educational program for a one-day stop at the San Bernardino Community College District (SBCCD). The RALI CARES trailer is outfitted to look like a teenager or young adult’s bedroom, but it is filled with hidden warning signs of substance misuse. Former law enforcement use their years of experience to point out these warning signs that often go unnoticed, and discuss ways to seek help if a loved one is struggling with addiction.
“Educating members of our community about early signs of substance abuse is critical in our fight against the opioid crisis,” said Congressman Pete Aguilar (CA-31). “Thank you to the Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative for coming to our community and shining a spotlight on this important issue.”
“We were thrilled to host the RALI CARES trailer, the office of Congressman Pete Aguilar, and our wider community at our headquarters today,” said SBCCD spokesperson Angel Rodriguez. “Educational resources like this are valuable to help promote our community’s health and wellbeing.”
RALI is an alliance of local, state and national organizations committed to finding solutions to end the opioid epidemic. To learn more about RALI’s work in communities, safe disposal, and to tour the RALI CARES virtual trailer visit www.raliusa.org.
