Opioid Awareness Month
March 7, 2016
On March 7, 2016, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz addressed the opioid crisis at a forum held at Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School.
Dozens of parents and students attended the forum entitled, "Bringing Awareness to the Opioid Crisis and Addiction." The night was part of an ongoing series of forums on the opioid issue that is made possible by the University Community Initiatives Partnership Grant at Bridgewater State University.
DA Cruz discussed the Drug Abuse Task Force he and Sheriff McDonald founded, and the ways it is attacking the problem, including reducing supply and demand of opioids and incorporating innovative treatment options in Plymouth County.
Also speaking at the forum alongside DA Cruz was State Representative Angelo D'Emilia and Dr. Daniel Muse, an emergency medicine doctor affiliated with Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital, who is seeing the effects of the opioid epidemic in his emergency room every day.
