The primary and secondary victims of substance abuse are largely unaware of the different diagnosis within the problem, as well as treatments and medications available to assist with the problem. Finding ways to increase public awareness will provide the dual benefit of increasing early identification and treatment and increase support for the Foundation's activities as well.
