Legal Services Corporation's Opioid Task Force released its final report June 11: http://bit.ly/OpioidReport_LSC. The report concludes: "...Because the epidemic touches people and families from all races, genders, income levels, education levels, and backgrounds, no one system can address all the causes. ... Nor can any single system provide all the support individuals seeking to succeed in recovery need.
"Many people face barriers to success that can be addressed only through legal action, which makes civil legal aid attorneys a critical part of the response to the opioid epidemic." (page 48 of full report)
