Our Community and the Opioid Crisis

This community television presentation was held in the FCA Studios on May 17, 2017 in an effort to learn more about opioid addiction and how to combat it.

The presentation included firsthand accounts of the challenges of addiction. Local officials and medical professionals shared warning signs, support strategies, and how the medical, legal, public safety, and municipal community resources are uniting to address the opioid crisis.
