Fighting the Opioid Epidemic

This past week I attended a forum with volunteers from Connecticut Central Health District, clinicians from Rushford and families sharing their addiction and recovery stories. The opioid epidemic has been a growing problem and we've fought hard over that time to help families and loved ones get the help they need and deserve. Having an open dialogue and hearing real stories helps me as a senator understand how to best fight this epidemic in district and up in Hartford. Thank you to everyone who attended the forum and I will continue to work with families, towns and organizations to combat opioid addiction.
