NRVCS (New River Valley Community Services) has launched a new series of videos in observance of National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week (January 22 – 27, 2019).

According to Communications & Outreach Coordinator Mike Wade, videos are being published/posted daily. Each one focuses on a specific drug, including: alcohol, nicotine (and vaping), marijuana and opioids.

In the videos, NRVCS Prevention Specialists Nick Bilbro and Nycole deLeeuw share facts that point to the potential harmful effects of each drug. Wade says the series will also include a segment dedicated specifically to the disease of addiction. The final installment will give an overview of opportunities for community members to get involved in the region’s efforts to address substance misuse and addiction.

You can check out a playlist of the videos that have already been shared this week by visiting the NRVCS YouTube channel.
