Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti praised DeKalb County Tuesday for its cooperative efforts in handling the opioid crisis.
Sanguinetti made the comments as part of a roundtable discussion with health, law enforcement, and government officials from around DeKalb County. They highlighted local efforts such as drug court, health counseling, and expanded access to Narcan, an anti-overdose medication.
Sanguinetti says it can be difficult for some areas to get past the stigma of treating opioid addiction.
