The opioid crisis has tragically escalated into an epidemic in our state. It has affected those in every corner and walk of life. Its consequences are tragic and affect not only those afflicted with addiction, but their families and our communities as well.
We must make it a priority to prevent addiction in the first place. Starting in the schools, we must educate our children about the risk of this dangerous threat.
Tim will make sure resources are made available to those struggling with addiction and their families. Those afflicted must not only receive the critical life-saving NARCAN and short term in-patient rehabilitation, but long term support to increase the chance for long term recovery.
Tim believes resources must be dedicated to law enforcement to keep opioids out of our schools and out of our neighborhoods. Tim will not rest until those that profit from drugpeddling are put behind bars.
