This resource guide is dedicated to our first responders who are out there every day saving lives and asking people if they need help. We know it can take a toll to see the pain caused by substance use disorders on families, friends and communities. The current opioid crisis has impacted our local communities and our first responders always answer the call. They are always willing to connect residents to resources. Thank you for your work. You are Makin’ It Happen.
