Interesting Article, New York Times
Updated On: Sep 26, 2018

We are all very aware of the Opioid Epidemic that continues to rage across the country.  I read a very interesting article in the New York Times this morning on this issue.  In 2017 there were 72,000 drug overdose deaths in our country.  2018 looks to have even more by the end of the year.  The construction industry has the second-highest rate of pain medication and opioid misuse in the country.  Unlike alot of our counterparts, our insurance supplies help in this area.  NEIBP has all the resources needed to get mental health and drug related help.  All you have to do is ask.  Three simple words, "I need help" is all you need to say to get what you need to overcome these addictions.  If you, or a family member, are not sure how to reach out and ask, call the Hall.  Reggie Garner is working, very hard,  to reach out and help anyone who wants to be helped.  Please, if Reggie is not the person you think you can talk to, anyone in the Hall will make themselves available to help you get what you need to start that road to recovery.  Reggie has also started a Recovery Support Group.  They meet the 3rd Friday of every month, here at the Hall, at 4:30 pm.  Anyone, who would like to attend, is welcome.  Just give Reggie a call and he can give you all the details and answer any questions you may have.  I have added the link below to the story I read.  Take a look and read what they have to say.  We are here for you and your family, if you want the help.
