Opioids

Windsor County has the highest rate in the State of Vermont for deaths related to the misuse of Opioids. Any life lost is too many!

Opioids are illegal drugs like heroin and fentanyl. Pain medicines given legally by prescription from a doctor are also opioids. Using any amount of these drugs higher than directed by your doctor, or taken when a person is not in pain, is very dangerous. Opioids are highly addictive and overdose happens. Heroin and fentanyl are two of the world’s most dangerous opioids. Treatment programs offer medicines such as Buprenorphine and Suboxone® that can help opioid users break the addiction and lower the risk of death.
