- According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, heroin
use has increased significantly in the past few years, and it
continues to rise.
The number of people who die from heroin-related overdoses in the
United States is nearly four times what it was a decade ago. On
Thursday, March 16 from 11:30am-1pm, partners across Logan County
will continue efforts to address opioids in Logan County.
“Our community collaboration efforts to address the opioid epidemic
in Logan County began over year ago. We now have established work
teams and meaningful objectives to guide our efforts,” said Angela
Stoltzenburg, manager of Healthy Communities Partnership.
“At the March 16 meeting our work teams will meet to discuss our
progress on activities ranging from community awareness, family
influence campaigns, support of law enforcement efforts, increased
naloxone access/training, and more. We invite any members of the
public to join a work team to help our efforts,” said Stoltzenburg.
