I was honored to be part of the speakers’ panel today at an event hosted by the Middlesex-London Health Unit. This event gave an update to the local response on the opioid crisis and presented data on opioid-related deaths in 2018.It takes a village to solve a crisis and these numbers show that together, we can do just that. Once again, thank you to all the community partners involved.
“The local strategy to respond to the opioid crisis has been built on the four pillars of prevention, treatment, harm reduction and enforcement. Each of the partners that has collaborated in this response has been able to provide services and support that align with this model that has been shown to reduce the potentially deadly outcomes associated with addiction to opioid drugs. While the results so far are encouraging, much remains to be done.”
