Confronting Maine’s Opioid Crisis March 6, 2017 at the Augusta Civic Center
With the enactment of PL 488, as part of the State’s comprehensive efforts to address the opioid crisis, Maine has now joined an elite group of states to earn a “Making Progress” distinction from the National Safety Council, the highest ranking bestowed by the Council in its Prescription Nation report.
This conference featured two national speakers from the National Safety Council and Maine experts who provided insight into how we can stop these highly addictive painkillers from flooding our communities, alternative treatments for pain management along with evidence-based tapering options for those already prescribed opioids.
