Digging Deep: Attacking the Opioid Epidemic at its Roots

Replicating an innovative model for multi-sector community-based collaborative action across America

This will be the first in a series of blogs on TLI’s Community Collaborative™.

People, families and communities are in deep pain as the death toll from substance abuse continues to climb. For the first time in centuries, life expectancy decreased in the United States.
