The Opioid Task Force is taking vital steps to stop the use of drugs in Franklin County, Massachusetts. Franklin County middle schools will begin implementing the Botvin LifeSkills Training program in an effort to combat the rate of opiate use in the area.

“This is an incredibly effective program. Its been well researched and shown to have really impressive outcomes at reducing youth substance use as well as youth violence and other risky behaviors” said Kat Allen, Co-chair of Communities That Care Coalition.

The LifeSkills Training Program has proven to reduce tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drug use by 80%.

“It’s really positive. It focuses on things like communication skills, decision-making skills, conflict resolution, coping with anxiety, coping with anger,” said Allen.
