Prevention of opioid misuse and substance abuse education is a major focus.
Youth and young adults are provided opportunities to engage in literature and non-fiction articles about opioid misuse and substance abuse in order to understand the risks. Guided discussion with peers about these topics, as well as, interactive art, theater, and leadership training will reduce substance abuse and opioid misuse among this population. Some participants will choose to become prevention messengers that present their understandings to peers, family, and community. This creates a "ripple" effect of prevention!
Family members that have lost a loved one to an opioid medication overdose, and persons growing up with or currently living with an addicted loved one may have short-term or enduring obstacles that arise that could prevent the outcome of a flourishing and empowered life. Those obstacles may be of an emotional, physical, or even a financial nature.
The Lotus Educational Group is dedicated to assisting with overcoming those obstacles through literature, education, conferences, counseling, inter-group collaboration, volunteer service, outreach activities, and leadership.
