A Message From Gramma
The campaign and PSA is part of an effort to help patients and families struggling with addiction be aware of the risks and how to take extra precautions during the pandemic.
Health officials warn that those struggling with an addiction – particularly opioid and methamphetamine use disorders – and those who smoke or vape nicotine or marijuana may be more vulnerable than others to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 and to developing more severe symptoms. COVID-19 attacks the respiratory tract and can lead to serious complications, such as pneumonia and respiratory failure.
