This panel discussion will include testimony from experts, information on how police and emergency personnel respond, treatment options and resources for combating the crisis locally.

Speakers will include Burnsville Fire's Medical Director, drug and alcohol counselors, addition psychologists and emergency responders. The discussion will help define the problem, understand its impacts and provide resources to combat it.
