The NC Empowering Youth and Families Program (EYFP) focuses on opioid prevention education for middle school youth and their caregivers in rural North Carolina.  The goals of our program are to reduce youth substance use in rural North Carolina, to improve parenting skills of caregivers to assist youth in making healthy choices, to improve family relationships, and to empower families to lead community change to leverage support for healthier lifestyles within those communities.
