This Week on MLJ | October 19th

This week on a special edition of Mountain Lake Journal, we take you to a new detox & rehab center opening in the North Country to treat heroin and opioid addicts. We’ll talk about the critical need it will fill, and other steps community groups are taking to raise awareness about the opioid epidemic in the North Country.
We’ll get an update on a project to turn Clinton Community College dorms into temporary housing for addicts in recovery.

We’ll also talk with New York’s OASAS Commissioner who oversees the state’s efforts to combat the growing opioid crisis.
