We believe that the opioid epidemic in our region can be curtailed by focusing on the prevention of drug abuse through education, intervention, treatment, law enforcement, and other means. We will promote awareness and reduce stigma of addiction and barriers to treatment. We will introduce and instill prevention efforts in all sectors of our community so that prevention becomes a way of life. As a result of this effort, the greater Kingsport area will be a safer, healthier and more vibrant community and will serve as a model for other communities.
