The City of Mukilteo Police Department invites you to a Community Forum: Opiate & Heroin Epidemic A Community Response. The forum will be presented by Susan Kingston, the Education Coordinator for the Center for Opioid Safety Education at UW.
The forum is intended to inform the community on opioid use, current trends and overdoes date in Washington as well as Snohomish County.
Explore the “how” and “why” of opioid dependence and what makes opioids so different from other drugs. The forum will address risk and protective factors for youth, community and policy strategies to address opioid use/overdoes (i.e. “what can we do?”) and overdoes response and naloxone medications.
