[ARCHIVED] Heroin and the opioid epidemic

The Snohomish Police Department hosted a community forum on the Heroin epidemic at Snohomish High School on May 26, 2016.

The Snohomish Police Department hosted a community forum on the Heroin epidemic at Snohomish High School on May 26, 2016. The keynote speaker was Dr. Caleb Banta-Green and the presentation he gave is available for your review. Dr. Banta-Green works for the University of Washington as part of the Alcohol & Drug Abuse Institute. The information he provided is very insightful and helps to explain some of the “how” and “why” of opioid dependence and strategies to address opioid use and prevention. The Snohomish Police Department would also like to remind everyone that we do participate in the drug take back program and if you have unwanted prescription medication in your home, you can drop those off at the police department Monday-Friday, 9 AM until 5 PM, at no cost. Those unwanted medications are then disposed of as part of the county wide take back program administered by the Snohomish Health District.
