Lowell CHC Participates in Opioid Forum with Congresswoman Trahan

“After hearing the dire opioid stories from local first responders, law enforcement, health-care providers and those who have lost loved ones to the crisis, U.S. Rep. Lori Trahan could confidently state that the model of care is clearly broken. That longer-term recovery plans are key in the fight against this insidious disease. And there’s a workforce shortage, not enough people have access to treatment, the funding model needs to change, and the system is not designed to proactively help people who are struggling.”
