Senator King Hosts Opioid Abuse Forum at EMHS


Today, US Senator Angus King (I-Maine) and the director of National Drug Control Policy, Michael Botticelli, hosted a roundtable with US Attorney, Thomas Delahanty, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D-Maine), and other invited guests regarding opioid abuse in Maine.
This event focused on opioid abuse in Maine and how federal policies can be improved to better address the serious threat that abuse of opioids has on personal and public health. Senator King invited prevention and treatment experts from across the state, those in recovery, families dealing with addiction issues, healthcare providers, law enforcement, first responders, and other local leaders to personally share their stories with him and Director Botticelli.
EMHS’ role was to provide the meeting place and help advance this important conversation.
