Addressing the Opioid Epidemic in Small Cities
The opioid epidemic does not discriminate among communities. This is a major public health crisis. Cities and towns are innovating in their responses and focusing on helping get treatment for those with substance use disorder rather than sending them off to prison. Treatment is expensive, it takes time, and it takes many partnerships but the effort is worth the cost in lives saved. Cities, working with counties, churches, pharmacies, first responders, doctors, and hospitals can achieve great success.
