From 1999 to 2016 more than 12,000 North Carolinians died from opioid-related overdoses.

Statistics released in May 2017 showed that there were more than 1100 Opioid related deaths in the state during 2015, a 73 percent increase over ten years.  That report from North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper’s office provided county by county numbers.  It documented 15 Opioid related deaths in Carteret County, 22 in Craven County and 4 in Pamlico County during 2015.

The purpose of this forum is to inform the public of the current crisis and report on current programs and plans to combat the epidemic that is devastating many families in our community. The event is free and open to the public and the public is encouraged to interact with the panel of officials during Q&A.
