Town of Newtown - News & Announcements
Last Friday, Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that the state will be working with a team from Yale University, the state Alcohol and Drug Policy Council (ADPC) and stakeholders across the state to craft a strategic plan to address the issue of opioid use, addiction and overdose in Connecticut.
Public comment and insight will be crucial to the final plan. The CORE initiative team will be gathering that input and incorporating it into their final plan through two avenues:
Website - Connecticut Opioid Response Initiative
We encourage anyone who has been affected by opioid addiction and overdose in Connecticut in any way to share their experience, their constructive feedback and their suggestions for the CORE team. Information submitted via email and the online form will go to the same place. Please also be aware that the CORE team is only collecting feedback for the strategic plan. Anyone seeking resources or help for a prescription opioid or heroin addiction should call 1-800-563-4086 or visit http://portal.ct.gov/governor/substance-abuse/.
Thank you for participating in this effort.
E. Patricia Llodra, First Selectman
