Partnership for Drug Free Hall

Help us strengthen our community for generations to come.

In 2015 in Georgia alone, more than 1300 people have died from opioid overdose. Armed with the right tools and information, you may be able to save a life.  Help DrugFreeHall as we work to save our children and families from opioid and heroin overdoses.

The Partnership for Drug Free Hall can come to your church or civic group meeting to conduct overdose trainings or alcohol and drug awareness training.  Substance abuse issues affect every family and have devastating effects on our community. Our programs are enlightening, inspiring and relevant.
