Law Enforcement is Changing Its Response to the Opioid Epidemic. Here's How.

by Michael Petersen | Dec 5, 2018

As the opioid epidemic has escalated across the country, law enforcement has found itself on the frontlines of a humanitarian disaster. Until recently, officers were never trained and departments were never built to handle the volume, severity and complexity of emergencies connected to a single ongoing crisis like the one that is currently besieging American communities from coast to coast.  

In a medium-size police department, budgets are tight, manpower is limited, and an average officer is already overwhelmed by the amount of calls for service daily. When you add to this officer’s daily shift a half-dozen assists to overdose victims, where officers are called to administer the overdose-reversing drug Narcan (naloxone), an officer’s job becomes substantially more difficult.

A Warrior Among Us - A Voice from the Recovery Community

by Jonathan Candee | Nov 19, 2018

As a man in long term recovery, I can attest that one of the most unfaltering truths is that addiction does not discriminate. This heartbreaking disease leaves no demographic or socio-economic group immune to the suffering addiction brings. Race, gender, sexual preference, and age cannot predict who will be impacted. Over the years in active recovery, I was taught to share my experience with others in three stages: what it was like; what Happened; and what it is like today. I share my story with you today in the hope someone can identify and feel inspired by the blessing of long-term recovery.

Here is one employee's experience, in his own words:

Mark*: Care Coordinator, CleanSlate

Years ago, back in the 90’s, I had a brother-in-law who suffered from addiction. We used to be best friends. As a matter of fact, I used to get high with him back in the day. But then he graduated to heroin. Soon he was homeless.
