Catching the ‘crucial window of opportunity’ to escape opioid disorders

Opioids are insidious, and when a user expresses willingness to get help there is a small, crucial window of opportunity. That window slams shut when symptoms of withdrawal hit. Community Mental Health Affiliates, along with the Greater Hartford Harm Reduction Coalition and Beacon Pharmacy, have scheduled a naloxone (Narcan) education and free distribution event at 270 John Downey Drive, New Britain, from 5-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18. All are welcome.
