San Rafael, CA – Marin County’s Public Health Officer has laid down a direct challenge to people affected by the epidemic of prescription drug misuse: help make the seriousness of opioid addition an honest and open public discussion, because every recovery story is inspiring in its own way.
“To solve this epidemic we need to see addiction as a disease and treat it,” said Dr. Matt Willis during a community meeting hosted by the award-winning RxSafe Marin initiative. “Shame and stigma drives the subject underground, and it’s much more difficult to control. We’re fortunate to have people around us who have been directly affected step forward and share their stories.”
