It's not happening somewhere else, it's happening here and now. Opioid misuse -- when drugs like prescription painkillers are taken incorrectly -- is hurting the health of people who live in Clay County by causing addiction, hospitalizations and even death. Even if you don't struggle with dependence or addiction yourself, you probably know someone who does. Opioid misuse affects people of all ages, genders, races and income levels.
