DISTRICT ATTORNEY TO LEAD OPIOIDS FORUM IN MINISINK: TODAY, OCT. 19

Posted October 19 at 12:00pm

For too long, we responded to the opioid crisis as something happening elsewhere, to complete strangers. But here we are today in Orange County where three times more residents are dying of heroin or pain medication overdoses than in any other county in New York State.

 

Knowing firsthand how opiates are gripping our communities, workplaces, schools and families, District Attorney David M. Hoovler has launched “Connect 2 Disconnect,” an opiate-awareness campaign. To reach families and young people across the county and help stop this mounting devastation, the DA’s Office is sponsoring a special forum at Minisink Valley High School today, Thursday, Oct. 19, at 6:30 p.m., in the MVHS auditorium. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
