Project C.L.E.A.N.

Project C.L.E.A.N. (Community Leaders Eliminating the Abuse of Narcotics) is a partnership between local community leaders such as healthcare professionals, law enforcement, school officials and community members to enhance awareness and understanding of opioid use and abuse. This is accomplished through community education seminars that encourage open conversations about the safe use of prescription opioids.

Educating the community at large regarding the opioid epidemic and its history, victims, caregivers, available and needed resources, and what the community can do with a prevention focus to assist in this life-changing and life-saving effort.
