How is the Opioid Epidemic Affecting Arlington?

There has been a spike in drug overdose deaths and opioid-involved deaths in the United States. In fact, the majority of drug overdose deaths involve an opioid and overdoses from prescription opioids are a driving factor in this 16-year spike. Join us in February when our program will focus on this escalating crisis and its impact on Arlington residents. What is happening in Arlington and are we prepared to adequately respond to this crisis? Our speakers will share their views and inform us on on community efforts.


Guest Speakers:

E. Reed Smith, Operational Medical Director - Arlington County Fire Department (ACFD)

Debby Taylor, Senior Vice President and Executive Director - Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic
