SAVANNAH, GA – On Monday, November 28th the Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) brought the RALI CARES trailer to The Front Porch facility in Savannah. RALI is partnering with Code 3 to bring the RALI CARES educational program to communities across the United States. The RALI CARES trailer is designed to look like a teenager’s or 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.
“The RALI CARES educational program is such an important tool for parents and other members of our community to experience,” said Congressman Buddy Carter (R-GA). “It was an eye opening experience for me to tour the RALI CARES trailer, and I’m so glad that our community has been armed with the information necessary to spot some of these red flags.”
“The Front Porch has worked hard over the years to keep members of this community safe,” said Anne Robinson, Executive Director of The Front Porch. “We’re thankful that our staff and parents has the opportunity to tour the RALI CARES trailer and learn what to look out for to keep their children safe. It’s this type of education that can turn the tide on the opioid crisis.
The RALI CARES trailer will be at the J.C. Lewis Primary Health Care Center from 1:00PM to 7:00PM.

The Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) supports programs that help prevent the misuse of prescription medicines so that more lives can be saved from the opioid crisis. We do this by bringing together community leaders and elected officials who are committed to finding effective solutions and sharing ideas that will make a difference across the state.
The Front Porch is a community-based risk reduction program designed to identify youth and families at risk of becoming involved with the Court and link them to community resources to divert them from the court system.
