Let’s Talk New Mexico 10/5 8a: The opioid epidemic—and what to do about it—has become a national conversation in recent years. Congress has passed bills trying to help, President Trump appointed a task force to outline solutions to the epidemic, and the New Mexico legislature has passed several bills aimed at reducing the death toll from overdoses.
But have those efforts gotten help to the people that need it? What do New Mexico’s communities need to win their fight with opioid addiction?
This week on Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’re looking at the national and local responses to the opioid epidemic and asking whether they are making a difference to communities in our state.
