Maine Opioid Crisis
The abuse of prescription opioids is a serious national crisis. While the opioid epidemic has been declared a national public health emergency, in Maine the situation is particularly alarming: Our state’s rate of opioid-related overdose deaths is among the highest in the country.
As the most expansive integrated health system in Maine, Northern Light Health is keenly aware of how far-reaching and devastating this crisis is in our state. We are committed to providing access to prevention, education and treatment services for opioid and other substance abuse disorders. We’ve assembled these resources for members of our communities to learn more about this epidemic and connect to the help they may need.
