Opioid conference: “We’re losing a generation”

Posted on: 11.9.2017 at 04:01 p.m.

Wednesday’s opioid conference drew a good crowd and several speakers who deal with the opioid crisis daily. Members from law enforcement and EMS, the schools, healthcare, mental health providers and the faith community, among others, participated. Everyone agreed that opioids are a threat not only to people’s health, but to society as a whole. Solutions will not be easy, but attendees said the conference will raise awareness. Attendees divided into three groups to talk about what could be done locally. See Thursday’s News Reporter for a full report.
