Reducing Opioid and Prescription Drug Misuse

In an effort to reduce opioid and prescription drug misuse in our community, the Town of East Hartford and the State of Connecticut's Departments of Mental Health & Addiction Services and Public Health will begin a public campaign called Change the Script!


As part of this campaign, East Hartford Youth Services is sponsoring a community forum titled: "An Overview of the Opioid Crisis" TONIGHT, April 4, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the East Hartford Community Cultural Center Auditorium, 50 Chapman Place.

Free Child Care will be provided. Spanish translation services will be available and light refreshments will be served.

Change the Script is a new statewide program that connects town leaders, healthcare professionals, treatment professionals, and everyday people with the resources they need to face prescription drugs and opioid misuse - and write a new story about what we can accomplish when we all work toward a shared goal. The campaign is intended to provide useful, usable materials to help address the opioid crisis at the most local level.
