Cassidy: Opioids Growing Problem Locally, Statewide

The Town Talk - U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy met with local law enforcement and other stakeholders Wednesday to discuss what has become one of his signature issues — opioid abuse.

The round table discussion included first responders, judges, district attorneys and health officials, among others.

"This was a chance to get feedback first hand from the people who are on the front lines," Cassidy said after speaking to members of the North Rapides Business and Industry Alliance Wednesday afternoon. "Do we have all the answers? Not even close. But this is a clear problem that's growing and growing, and we need to do all we can to address it."
