The Alarming Rise in Drug & Alcohol Abuse in NH With More Crime & Less Economic Growth

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Bedford Village Inn

8:00 AM to 9:30 AM

Breakfast Will Be Served 
Speakers:

Colonel Robert Quinn, NH State Police

Economist Brian Gottlob, PolEcon Research

Dr. Cheryl Wilkie, Sr. Vice-President, Farnum Center

 

Heroin use and prescription drug abuse are reportedly reaching epidemic proportions in NH, with police and health officials saying that the addictions know no boundaries of city or town, young or old, rich or poor.  Deaths and crimes from abuse are going up.  A recent research report estimates that the NH economy is taking a $1.8 billion dollar hit from drug and alcohol abuse, and that there are inadequate treatment resources across the state for those who are addicted.  Our guest speakers will give us the sobering facts on the extent of the problem, and what’s being done to address its fast growth.
