“Real Stories from Real People”

iwins logo Welcome to the IWINS - I Wish I Never Started - educational program. This easy to use program is designed to help you educate your group about the very serious dangers of prescription painkiller abuse. Since prescription painkillers and heroin seem the same to your brain, prescription drug abuse quickly leads to heroin abuse. And more people die every year from prescription drug overdoses than car or gun accidents. Let’s work together to save lives!

With only 10 minutes of prep time you can present a 30 minute program that will educate your group on the realities of prescription painkiller abuse.

We cover
  • Why prescription painkillers are so addicting
  • How prescription painkiller abuse leads to heroin abuse
  • How many young people get on the path to addiction and where it leads them
  • Facts on the disease of addiction
  • What to do if you or someone you care about is struggling with addiction
  • Encouraging youth to make positive choices that allow them to fulfill their dreams
And finally, we end by
  • Encouraging everyone to make a commitment to live drug-free lives and sign our pledge.


Are you ready to start saving lives?
