Wow. Eliza Dushku spoke today in Manchester very candidly about her battle with addiction.

The opiod crisis here in New Hampshire and all across New England is undeniable especially among our youth. It is so important that the thousands of middle and high school students that filled that auditorium in Manchester today recieve the message that Dushku and all of the other speakers were trying to convey.

We are tired of losing our children, neighbors, students and friends to this epidemic. Events like this are a step in the right direction.
