Opioid Initiative Town Hall Meeting

Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac is sponsoring a town hall meeting at the police department tonight (Wednesday) – to discuss the impact of opioid abuse. Opioid related overdoses in Fond du Lac have jumped from 13 in 2012 to 51 last year – while opioid related deaths have fallen from the all-time high of 16 in 2015 to seven last year. Drug Free Communities credits that drop to the availability of narcan for first responders. The town hall begins at 5:30PM. The department is located at 126 North Main Street in Fond du Lac.
