ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
Opioids are now one of the leading causes of injury-related deaths in Washington State. More people die from overdose than from car crashes. The Starts with One campaign is designed to inform and educate young adults, their parents, and older adults about the dangers of prescription drug misuse and the importance of safe storage, use, and disposal. This campaign is funded by the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA).
We developed a number of resources to help educators, health providers, nonprofits and other partners to use the prevention and safe disposal campaigns in their own communities. You can access and download the materials for each campaign below.
