Regional Roundtable: Reporters Discuss State Efforts to Combat Opioid Crisis

Mar 8, 2016

This hour -- from Maine to New Hampshire; Vermont to Massachusetts -- we learn how some of our New England neighbors are working to stem opioid addiction and overdose. 

We also check in with WNPR reporter Patrick Skahill. His new two-part series takes an in-depth look at prescription drug disposal. We find out what you're really supposed to do with all your old, unused medications.
