Mayor Winnecke’s Substance Abuse Task Force has joined Eyewitness News (WEHT Local and Local 7 WTVW) along with the Vanderburgh County Prosecutors Office to provide answers designed to help those in need or concerned about the dramatic increase in heroin overdose deaths; the most popular gateway drug for opioid abusers. A Community in Pain will introduce us to the faces of opioid with profiles of everyday people now addicted or recovering from their addiction. We’ll hear from medical professionals, first responders and community leaders who believe opioid abuse is now a public health crisis. Although our coverage will be up close and real, our goal and the goal of our partners is to raise our voices in the community and provide help.
