Recovering opioid addict calls crisis in the area ‘sad’ and ‘scary’

Windsor region health officials have a long battle ahead of them as they take on an opioid crisis that should have been tackled years ago, says addictions expert Drive Tony Hammer.

Forty-three opioid users in Windsor and Essex County died in 2015, which is the latest year for available data.
