CAROLINE’S BEST DAY

Opioid dependence can happen after just 5 days.

Caroline eats, sleeps, and breathes soccer. It’s more than a game to her — it’s part of who she is. So landing a full scholarship to play for her top school is a dream come true.

But the dream will be short lived.

Two games into her freshman season, Caroline will tear her achilles. She’ll be prescribed opioids to deal with the pain. When they’re gone, she’ll be desperate to get more. Her parents won’t know she has an addiction… that it’s a disease. They’ll just want their little girl back.

But the Caroline they knew will be gone. Buried at 18… with her soccer cleats.

Opioid dependence can happen after just 5 days.
