Webinar: Louisiana’s Heroin Epidemic and Overuse

November 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Overview

Drug abuse is a significant problem nationwide, as well as in our communities in Louisiana. Our facilities are dealing with this epidemic on a daily basis and they create dangerous situations not only for the patients who take the drugs, but also the individuals around them and staff who care for them. Please join us as Dr. Clark discusses this problem as it relates specifically to Louisiana.
