Addiction to prescription painkillers, especially among young adults, is growing at an alarming rate in Western New York. In order to address this epidemic, Save the Michaels, BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York and Horizon Health Services has formed a community outreach initiative to increase public awareness of prescription painkiller addiction, provide educational resources to schools, students, parents and community groups, and most importantly, to connect those in need with appropriate treatment resources.
