Community Response to Heroin Abuse

  Law enforcement and health professionals are calling heroin abuse in Greater Cincinnati an epidemic. The drug is cheap, easy to get, and its affects are devastating. But several agencies and individuals have joined forces to fight heroin use. Dr. Lynne Saddler, Northern Kentucky Health Department District director of Health, Senior Program Officer Ann Barnum with Interact for Health, and Dr. Mike Kalfas with The Christ Hospital Physicians talk about the community response to the heroin epidemic.
