The Opioid Epidemic

The following quotation was taken from the preamble to the 2018 Horry County Opioid Study completed by Renee Causey. It states:


It is a tragedy. As a community we must band together and address it. The following information was presented at seminar on The Opioid Epidemic which took place at New Directions in Myrtle Beach where professionals from a cross section of mental and physical health services met to discuss the crisis. The presentation intended to educate people regarding the nature of the epidemic, who is affected, what to watch for, and gives practical steps we can take to enter into the battle together.
