SOUTHAMPTON TOWN OPIOID ADDICTION TASK FORCE WILL HOLD PUBLIC FORUM



In an effort to stop the spread of the deadly opioid drug crisis, the Town of Southampton Opioid Addiction Task Force will hold a public forum on Wednesday, November 15th at 7pm at the Hampton Bays High School Auditorium.  The Task force is developing an action plan for the Southampton Town Board and it is inviting members of the community to participate.  

Medical, mental health, education and law enforcement professionals will participate in this Town Hall event to help search for solutions to the opioid crisis that impacts everyone.  The Forum, called “It Hits Home” will bring people in recovery to the table to help experts examine best practices and responses to reduce the opioid crisis.  

“This is a national crisis that has hit home,” said Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, co-chairman of the Opioid Addiction Task Force.  “Our Community is coming together in an effort to prevent further tragedies.”

Drew Scott, formerly of News 12, is co-chairman of the task force.  “I lost my beautiful granddaughter to opioid addiction,” said Mr. Scott.  “We have lost so many in the community to these deadly drugs.”  “We need to bring the experts together to help us find concrete solutions to this crisis,” said Scott.

The Opioid Addiction Task Force hopes to come up with an action plan to present to the Southampton Town Board by June 01, 2018.
