Governor Sununu Kicks Off State Tour to Include Local Stops Hosted by State Legislators


Concord, New Hampshire, March 21, 2019 – The Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative of New Hampshire (RALI NH) will be bringing the RALI CARES educational trailer to a number of cities across New Hampshire, including Concord, Dover, Portsmouth, Exeter, Manchester and Amherst. Set up as a mock teenage bedroom, the trailer exhibit aims to educate families about the possible warning signs of drug use or abuse. Governor Chris Sununu kicked off the educational effort in Concord and was joined by members of the general public who also participated in the interactive experience. Created in partnership with Code 3, the program is a part of RALI NH’s ongoing efforts to combat the opioid epidemic.


“This initiative will help highlight the importance of education and prevention in ending the opioid crisis in our state,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “This is an important effort that will help New Hampshire families identify early warning signs of drug abuse and take action. I’m glad to join with my fellow elected officials, law enforcement, and community leaders in this effort.”


During its first visit to New Hampshire, the RALI CARES tour will be making six stops across the state. Each stop is hosted by a local legislator and law enforcement officials. Code 3 experts will help guide attendees and be on hand to answer questions. The tour stops are:
