Local student urges university to help curb drug epidemic

September 20, 2017 – Americans must stand in solidarity to curb the devastating effects of the nation’s drug crisis.

Malvern Institute has recognized the need to treat the disease of addiction since 1948. While state and local governments are beginning to realize the serious impact of the opioid epidemic, more organizations and institutions are required to step up efforts to address the crisis.

In the Temple News, a student expresses surprise that the school hasn’t made educating students on warning signs and overdose prevention a priority:

I used to be horrified that people would use drugs, now I find myself more horrified that we may not be doing all we can to help those struggling with addiction. I only recently learned how to administer Narcan myself by watching a video online.

With the huge impact the opioid epidemic has on Philadelphia, it’s time the university and students pay more attention. The administration should help make students more knowledgeable about opioid overdoses and how to prevent them. And students should take any opportunity they can to further educate themselves on this topic and how to administer the potentially life-saving medication.

If you or a loved one are living with addiction and have any questions about the Malvern Intervention Services or the Malvern 90-Day Model, please give us a call at 610.MALVERN (610.625.8376).
