Opioid abuse: Bring back ‘Just Say No’

Re: “Opioid fight requires more than words,” (TNT editorial, 11/29).

Regarding the cost and grief of the opioid crisis, I suppose Nancy Reagan’s “Just say no” program doesn’t sound so silly now, does it?

And it certainly wasn’t as expensive as treatment is now. Bring back the DARE program today and we may see rewards in 20 to 30 years.

Even saving one person from drug abuse is worth the cost.
