Opioid Epidemic

The disease of addiction affects people from all walks of life and has touched the lives of many in our community. A coordinated approach targeting both primary prevention and addiction treatment can help deal with the epidemic and save lives.

The State Department of Health and Mental Services, in coordination with the County Health Departments are working to coordinate efforts to combat the problem. As Delegate, I would continue working with these departments to ensure they have the resources necessary to maintain and increase their efforts as needed.
