South Dakota Suicide Facts

Opioids are highly addictive narcotic substances commonly prescribed for chronic pain after surgery or injury. Even though they can provide relief for those struggling with chronic pain, they must be used with extreme caution. Often, people suffering from an opioid use disorder and their families do not know where to turn for help.

Order FREE opioid-related resources to learn everything you need to know to help your community avoid and recover from substance misuse, abuse and addiction.

Meth addiction is everyone’s problem. There isn’t a single solution because meth is widespread. But we can approach it from different angles, so it doesn’t take over counties, towns and/or neighborhoods. Let’s work together. Learn how to help fight meth by viewing the information below.
