According to the organization Families Against Narcotics (FAN) each day over 2,000 teens abuse a prescription drug for the first time. Some try it for fun thinking they’re safe, others are prescribed painkillers by doctors, often to treat sports-related injuries. For many, this decision brings life changing consequences. FAN’s mission is to educate communities on the dangers of prescription drug abuse, especially painkillers. They also offer resources, education, and support to families touched by addiction through monthly meetings, outreach, and more. The Washtenaw County chapter holds monthly meetings on the second Monday of each month at 7pm at the 242 Community Church, 648 Wagner Rd.
