Opioid Overdose Crisis Hits Easton

The state of Massachusetts is experiencing an opioid (opiate) overdose epidemic.  Opioids are painkillers like oxycodone, methadone and heroin and are sold under trade names like Percocet, OxiContin, Vicaden and Demerol among others.
In a recent 5 year period, 30 Easton residents died from opioid related overdoses.  This is serious and it’s right here in our town.
 Many families have experienced the ramifications related to opioid misuse as a result of pain relief from athletic injuries.  It is important that you and your student-athlete(s) take the time to read and understand the dangers of the addiction.  Educational materials can be found at this link:  Opiod Education Information

Finally, the following link is to a video presentation about opioid addiction by Dr. Potee:  Dr. Potee - Opioid Video Link
 Please do not hesitate to contact the Oliver Ames athletics or health offices if you have any questions or concerns related to this topic.
