Opioid/Substance Abuse information and referral

There has been a lot of talk recently about the opioid and addiction crisis, both in the Midwest and throughout the country. The impact of these crises can be devastating to individuals struggling with addiction; they can also be deadly. The impact also goes deeper, affecting family, friends and loved ones.
