"Prescription Drug Safety: Know the truth,” an innovative curriculum developed by Truth Initiative and EVERFI, provides essential knowledge about fentanyl and prescription drug misuse to middle and high school students.

By 2023-2024, the program aims to reach another 250,000 students, emphasizing prescription drug safety.
