Please join Maryland State Trooper J.C. Kelly as he presents the cold, hard facts of the opioid epidemic that has gripped the nation. Heroin related deaths in Maryland alone, tripled from 2011 to 2015. In light of the Governor's opioid overdose prevention program, learn more about gateway drugs, the abuse of prescription drugs and how addiction escalates to heroin usage. All families have the potential to get caught up in the web of addiction. This presentation is tailored to the senior citizen audience with the goal of equipping senior citizens to prevent death, illness, and addiction due to opioid overdose within their own scope of influence in the role of patriarch/matriarch of the family.
