VaAware was developed as an informational tool for Virginia’s fight against prescription drug and heroin abuse in Virginia. This website features specific pages for parents, health-care providers, law enforcement members and those seeking help with addiction. Be informed.

The website is the result of collaboration between four Virginia agencies: the Department of Health Professions, the Virginia Department of Health, the Department of Criminal Justice Services, and the Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services. The site is hosted and maintained by the Department of Health Professions.
