Farm Town Strong

Posted by on January 24th, 2018 Posted in: Rural, Substance Addiction and Misuse

The opioid crisis has struck farm and ranch families much harder than the rest of rural America. Farmers report that it is easy for someone in their community to access a large amount opioids, while access to treatment and services is not so easy. The American Farm Bureau Federation and the National Farmers Union have joined forces to provide information and resources to those struggling with addiction. Find hotlines, options for treatment and support, help with prevention, and other resources at FarmTownStrong.
