Our own Dr. Charles Pattavina writes for the BDN about the opioid epidemic in Maine. We are losing one person a day in Maine … the loss to society and their families is extremely sad …

Seventy-eight people die every day in the United States from an opioid overdose, and, on average, one of these people dying each day is from Maine. It is nothing less than shocking that a public health menace is killing a person every day in our state.
