Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers has launched Phase 2 of their Youth Opioid Awareness Campaign.
Office coordinator Lana Tremblay says the campaign is an initiative targeted at youth to raise awareness of the inherent risks, outcomes and impacts of opioid use and addiction among youth.
She says this week the advocacy organization launched the first in a series of eight videos featuring Dr. James Watterson, a professor and the Director of the Forensic Science Institute for Research and Professional development at Laurentian University.
A forensic toxicologist, Dr. Watterson shares his insights about the toxicity of illicit drugs on our community.
Tremblay adds Phase 2 includes four videos and four interviews that will be released bi-weekly over the next 16 weeks.
