Attorney General launches effort targeting opioid abuse

Southwest Daily News - Attorney General Jeff Landry is working with Louisiana's ambulance operators and a drug company on a new informational campaign to educate the public on opioid abuse.

Landry announced Wednesday a new website at www.EndTheEpidemicLA.org that has information about assistance and treatment. The effort also will include advertisements and community outreach.

The campaign is a joint effort with the Louisiana Ambulance Alliance, with funding from drug company Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, which produces the overdose antidote naloxone.
