Arizona RX Drug Toolkit
The Arizona Rx Misuse and Abuse Toolkit is designed with the theme Awareness. Action. Outcomes! It provides the roadmap to move communities forward beyond that initial awareness stage into action and outcomes. Communities and coalitions cannot wait another day here in Arizona to implement this initiative. Every day that we do, we lose more lives to death and addiction. The time has come to address this public health crisis and we need your commitment.
