Battling the Opioid Crisis, One Conversation at a Time

June 18, 2019
Posted by Dovetail

When the National Council of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse called on Dovetail for communication ideas for preventing opioid abuse in the St. Louis area, we were eager to help.

Research revealed that parents could cut their children’s risk of drug misuse in half by having a few simple conversations with them. Yet, as most parents know, there’s nothing truly simple about talking to your kids about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. The Dovetail team created “Talk About It”, a multi-media campaign urging St. Louis area parents to start those conversations with their children by providing tools to make it easier to broach this difficult subject.

At their annual Spring Awards Luncheon, NCADA honored Dovetail with the Gateway Award. We were more than proud to receive this recognition. But our greatest reward comes from the fact that Talk About It has been so well received that the state of Missouri has rolled out the campaign statewide.
