March against drugs is June 8

Deterra bags will be distributed at the 22nd Annual March Against Drugs and Violence in Billings, MT.

The 22nd Annual March Against Drugs and Violence is planned for June 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Courthouse lawn in downtown Billings. We are addressing the opioid epidemic in which painkillers are being abused in our community.

We have provided insightful skits in our community on this topic where youth are participants. This has stimulated great conversations among the youth and with their parents.

We encourage young and old to come out and take a stand against drug abuse and violence. This program is providing education and awareness about pain management and prescription drug abuse. We hope that parents can talk with their youth, spouse to spouse and others about addictions in context of pain killers. We encourage families to get involved and be involved. It is your responsibility as parent, spouse, daughters/sons to know the signs and the resources.
