    Opioid Crisis Virtual Town Hall Series: Prevention and Education Strategies

    The first of NACo’s Virtual Town Halls on the opioid crisis will focus on strategies and programs that aim to prevent individuals from becoming dependent on prescription painkillers and heroin. As the large number of drug-related deaths across the U.S. brings increasing attention to efforts that aim to prevent these deaths, local leaders must not lose sight of the importance of preventing individuals from becoming drug-dependent in the first place. During this town hall, local leaders and national experts will discuss prevention and education strategies that can help to stem the tide of drug abuse in local communities.
