What Are Opioids?
Thursday, April 04, 2019, 07:00pm

The Springfield Free Public Library is pleased to host “What Are Opioids?” a program to be presented by the Springfield Board of Health in the library’s Palmer Museum at 7:00 PM on Thursday, April 4. In recent years, the state of New Jersey has been particularly hard it by the opioid epidemic, with 1,409 opioid related overdose deaths occurring in 2016, reflecting a rate that is 20% higher than the national average. The program will focus on how members of the community can become better educated regarding this serious problem and measures that can be taken to help reduce the death toll from opioid addiction.
