Our speaker was Roy Poillon who talked about Fentanyl and Families in Harms Way.  He is a clinical dependency counselor and board certified mental health coach.
Due to the effect of fentanyl on dopamine on the brain, a person will do anything to get that feeling again, and often the family pays the price.
With his experiences in Central America he realized that education is key to helping families understand what is happening, and to help the people who are addicted.  Currently our justice, healthcare, and other systems are setup to deal with the person who is addicted, but when they are released it is usually back into the care of their families, who have no idea how to help.
He has created several resources for people to learn from, and is in the process of setting up learning centers where people can come and learn how to offer support.
