Tight-knit communities struggle with opioid crisis.
In a region famous for it lush farmland and picturesque Amish buggies – community leaders are now grappling with a growing opioid crisis that is anything but quaint.
Newly released data from OverdoseFreePa.org – a product of a group of law enforcement and medical professionals in Pennsylvania, shows that over the last two years alone, close to 250 people have died from overdoses in Lancaster County.
Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman is one of leaders that helped develop the online database and resource.
“We are watching the number of these tragic cases climb with every year,” Stedman said. “Those numbers should serve as a call to action, and this workgroup is focused on just that.”
