On June 21, 2016, York County All on Board Coalition held a press conference in Rock Hill, SC to announce the beginning of a new initiative known as YCHOPE (York County Heroin-Opioid Prevention Education). Due to the national heroin and prescription pill epidemic and the rising number of heroin/opioid related deaths, this initiative will serve to educate the public and our local communities on the dangers and risk of harm associated with these substances.

This press event also celebrated the announcement that to date, the Operation Medicine Drop initiative has collected 3,127,437 doses of unwanted, unused, or expired medication! 13450974_1200086270025733_5912094972095626015_n
