Prevention Education
is Crucial 
 
According to Kiersten Hewitt, Executive Director, FCD Prevention Works, part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation:
"One pressing implication is the urgent need to educate youth, families and the public about the risks of adolescent substance use—including alcohol and marijuana use—and its relationship to health problems like addiction, other drug use and death."
"Young people must be provided age-appropriate, evidence-based education and skill-building opportunities while they are still healthy and free from all substances. To protect against later opioid misuse and addiction, prevention must target entire populations and must start from the earliest years of a child's education, both in the home and in school, continuing into young adulthood."
