North Carolina Changes Law to Address The Opiod Crisis

In 2018, 1718 North Carolina residents were killed due to overdose thanks to the reality of opioid abuse which has become so commonplace in our society. During that same year, at least 6,769 North Carolina residents were seen in emergency rooms across our state for opioid-related concerns according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. As many readers know, this opioid crisis affects a broad slice of families across the state without regard to race, religion, gender, or socioeconomic status and it is likely that you know someone affected by opioid abuse.
