Addiction Prevention

Most people have been touched in some way by substance use and addiction, whether it be their own use, friends, or family. Sometimes, something that starts out as a way to relax and have fun or to escape pain can turn into a life-threatening problem.  

The national crisis surrounding prescription opioids and heroin has started more conversations and led to a greater understanding of how alcohol and other drugs impact the body and brain.

Montgomery College wants to continue that conversation and provide students with information about addiction as well as treatments.
