    Addiction Resources

    In Virginia, drug overdoses are the leading cause of unnatural death and have been since 2013. Opioids — and most recently, specifically fentanyl — are the driving force behind the large increases. In 2021, fentanyl contributed to 76.4% of all Virginia overdose deaths. Awareness and education are two of the best defenses against opioid misuse and overdose. Resources for parents/guardians to learn about addiction and how to best support their students in making good choices are available on 新加坡六合彩开奖直播' Student Health webpage.
