“Drug overdoses represent a public health crisis that is as urgent as any we have ever confronted in Rhode Island. Over the last five years, we have lost more than 1,000 people to drug overdoses, and they have come from almost every community in the state.
As a parent, my heart breaks for the hundreds of Rhode Island families who have lost loved ones to addiction and overdose. We must demand and make swift change to address this crisis and promote treatment, prevention and recovery.”
Gina M. Raimondo, Governor
