The ROAD Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works in conjunction with our R.O.A.D To A Better Life substance abuse program. Our mission at The ROAD Foundation is to reduce prescription drug abuse by raising awareness of the risks involved to local area teens in New Hampshire schools. We believe in a fact based approach and work with volunteers from our R.O.A.D. To A Better Life program who have dealt with their own addiction issues in the past to help educate local teens on the reality of addiction. Prescription drug abuse is a very serious problem and we deliver the hard truth. It is up to our audience members to use this information as they see fit.
What We Do:
The misuse and abuse of prescription medications has become a leading cause of harm among New Hampshire residents. According to the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, one in eight young adults in the State reported abusing pain relievers during the past year. Given the risks associated with this behavior, one in eight is far too many.
The ROAD Foundation participates in live educational presentations at local area middle schools and high schools. These presentations are by invitation, and are at no cost to the schools.
Schools we have presented in:
Kingswood Regional Middle School in Wolfeboro, NH
Prospect Mountain High School in Alton, NH
Raymond High School in Raymond, NH
Winnacunnet High School Hampton, NH
Exeter High School Exeter, NH
