Conversations About The Opioid Epidemic in Connecticut & Beyond.

Please take a moment to listen to our interviews with President & CEO of the Governor's Prevention Partnership in Connecticut Jill Spineti on the opioid epidemic in our state and Expert Dr Craig Allen on the Opiod Crisis in CT. 

 

With #GovernorsPreventionPartnership, we launched a series of opioid awareness radio PSAs in CT. Listen here:

Did you know that every year drug overdoses kill more people than car accidents? When prescription or illicit opioids are involved, that’s more than 30,000 lives lost. 

Every year. But you can help change this. 

Most people who abuse opioids don’t have a prescription for a legitimate medical need. So never take an opioid unless your doctor prescribed it for you. And then only take it exactly as your doctor directed.

Drug Overdoses Kill More Than Cars, Guns, Falling. 

Store all your medicines securely, and once you’ve finished using them, dispose of unused or left-over medicine the right way, by visiting a community drug take-back program.

And if you or someone you know is struggling with opioid addiction, get help by calling 1-800-563-4086.

Addiction is a disease and everyone deserves a chance to get the care they need.

An important public health message from The Governor’s Prevention Partnership and Purdue Pharma.
