2 core program components - 

Two core program components which were focus grouped and refined in South County, have been developed as a highly passive but powerful way in which Sarasota’s doctors are now helping Drug Free Sarasota spread the latest information on the most pressing issues of prescription drug abuse and misuse issues occurring in our community.

Waiting Room Literature Module

Tear Sheet
