April is Drug Endangered Children (DEC) Awareness Month, and Wednesday, April 24 is the official DEC Awareness Day. The National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children - an organization working to break the cycle of abuse and neglect by empowering practitioners who work to transform the lives of children and families living in drug environments - established April as DEC Awareness Month several years ago as a time to bring practitioners and community members together to show their support for children.
State DEC Alliances have been busy throughout the month with a variety of events - signing proclamations, social media campaign drives, events at the state capitols, and more. Lori Moriarty, VP of National DEC, shares her perspective about DEC Awareness event in a special video. Check it out below.
