Rotarian Mike Polasek (LaGrange) reports to the RadioRotary team about a major effort on the part of local Rotary Clubs (LaGrange, Millbrook, Fishkill) to obtain a grant from The Rotary Foundation to fund awareness and prevention programs in the Mid-Hudson Valley, although Mr. Polasek emphasizes that opioid addiction is a worldwide program that affects all ages and all classes. Opioid abuse often starts with an original prescription for pain relief from an injury or surgical procedure, but the drug becomes a necessity for the person addicted, a
person who then may seek out street drugs to replace the prescription. The result is not only the misery of addiction but often overdose and death. The grant from The Rotary Foundation, focusing on adolescents 15 to 10 years old, would support awareness through social media and prevention by working with agencies already in the field.
