How is it playing out within the Commonwealth, and what are its specific effects within your municipality? How are individual departments, like Public Safety, managing or combating the problem? In this webinar, we’ll be addressing the opioid epidemic in a general sense, as well as looking at signs and symptoms of substance use, important addiction concepts, and various support resources.
