You guys shared the article ‘Can addiction be prevented?‘ so much, Richmond Family Magazine reported back that their visitation had increased by FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT that month. You rock! Your hyper-sharing was certainly appreciated.
Because you shared so much, it got ranked on Google and we received messages from all over about Preventure, the new solution to adolescent drug and alcohol prevention for which we had been soliciting letters of support. I heard from Ohio, Arizona, Maryland and the Caribbean and I had a call with another mental health advocate and the attorney general’s office in Ohio. So it generated additional interest outside our borders because as you know, it’s the opiate epidemic raging everywhere.
The Virginia grant for Preventure was submitted Feb 5. We got great letters of support including several superintendents from around the state and Attorney General Mark Herring. It was a very strong application thanks to all of you. You really hustled.
Thanks for helping create buzz. It made all the difference.
Now we wait.
