Featured Event: Pitt County Coalition on Substance Abuse Hosts J. H. Rose High School - STOP Series

Event Dates and Times

J. H. Rose High School Lecture Hall - 600 W Arlington Blvd, Greenville, NC 27834
J. H. Rose High School – The Pitt County Coalition on Substance Abuse collaborates with the Vidant Health Foundation and the Pitt County Sheriff’s Department to host upcoming Stop the Opioid Problem (STOP) Series. The STOP series is a one-time session that strives to educate the community on different aspects of opioids. The three topics that will be presented are Opioids 101, Personal Stories, and Current Trends. Opioids 101 will answer the questions: what are opioids, how do they help with pain, why are they so addictive, what about genetics, and what else can be used to console pain? With the Personal Stories, you will hear presentations from those who have personal experience with battling addiction and from family or friends who have experienced this battle with their loved ones. During the Current Trends, you will hear from local law enforcement about the Good Samaritan Law, Narcan, current law enforcement efforts, and learn more about harm reduction. Refreshments will be provided to all those in attendance of the event.

“91 Americans die every day from opioid drug overdoses. That’s almost 4 deaths an hour, or 33,091 annually.”

To combat this, the Pitt County Coalition on Substance Abuse is hosting the STOP Series to promote PCCSA’s efforts of education and advocacy throughout the community. The STOP Series is designed to raise awareness of the opioid crisis, and to bring community members together.


The Pitt County Coalition on Substance Abuse (PCCSA) was established out of the Eastern North Carolina Council on Substance Abuse (ENCCSA) in the fall of 2002 as a new sector of the community battling against substance abuse. PCCSA is comprised of individuals, members of various agencies and organizations in Pitt County that provide prevention, treatment and enforcement services for Pitt County residents of all ages. Parents, youth, and members of the recovering community are members of the PCCSA. The media, faith-based and business communities, civic and volunteer groups, government officials, and other organizations involved in reducing substance abuse are represented on the Coalition.

The Pitt County Coalition on Substance Abuse is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to bringing about a community where youth reject substance use, adults utilize low-risk choices regarding substance use, and treatment services are available to those in need.
