Panel Moderated by WVLT Local 8 Anchor – Lauren Davis

There is an upward trend in deaths related to opioid abuse. A recent Medical Examiner’s report for Knox & Anderson counties showed the number of drug-related deaths from 2010-2015 has doubled. The rate of prescription opioid abuse among adults 18-25 in TN is 30% above national averages. What you can do about this issue that affects our community? How do we take action?
