LET’S HEAL OUR OPIOID EPIDEMIC in HENDERSON County, NC.
HEALING OUR OPIOID EPIDEMIC
Opioid addiction devastates thousands of North Carolina families each year, including many mountain families. Our opioid death rate exceeds the national average: more than 5 North Carolinians dying each day from an opioid overdose.
North Carolina’s Opioid Action Plan (2017) is recognized nationally for reducing opioid access and improving addiction counseling and treatment. However, the high cost of treatment means many of us must cope with addiction alone. Medicaid expansion would provide treatment for an estimated 150,000 North Carolinians with opioid addiction.
Let’s work together for better treatment plans for victims in Henderson County and North Carolina! IF you agree, vote for local, state and Federal Democratic candidates on November 3rd
