Libraries Confront an Epidemic, Save Lives
The opioid crisis is growing, and librarians are on the front lines. Their efforts to address it are saving lives and healing communities. Teen Health & Wellness supports you as you confront this epidemic, providing trustworthy, nonjudgmental, and up-to-date information, and 24/7 access to hotlines and helplines.

Community-Based Prevention Strategies
91 Americans are estimated to die each day from an opioid overdose, and librarians see the devastating impact firsthand.1 They are intervening by training staff and raising community awareness. Educate teens and families with articles on addiction, drug abuse, opioid abuse, peer pressure, and more.

Foster Social Emotional Learning with Teen Personal Stories
Social emotional learning increases empathy while reducing depression, promoting self-awareness and responsible decision-making.2 Personal stories are a powerful way for teens to connect with their peers and learn from their experiences. Read the personal stories here and have your teens share their own.

Tyler’s Story
“I still didn’t fully understand the concept of drug abuse until I was older, but I knew that my dad wasn’t my dad anymore. It is hard to watch someone disappear right in front of you, it’s like looking into an empty shell…but you keep hoping they change back into this person you once knew.” Read more.
