    Producer/Host: Sue Mackey Andrews
    Engineer: Amy Browne

    Issue: Information about Opiates, Heroin, Marijuana and Addiction

    Program Topic: Prevention and Education about Addiction

    Key Discussion Points:
    a) The origin of heroin dates back hundreds of years – originally available without a prescription at any drug store
    b) Increased availability and use of opiates bolstered by addition of the 5th vital sign – pain, something that hospitals and providers are routinely evaluated about still today
    c) Contact your physician and talk about a prescription for a NARCAN kit if you are living with/know someone who is taking large dosages of pain medications, or is confronted with substance use disorder. This is legal in Maine.

    Guest: Heath Myers, Bangor City Public Health and Community Services
