Massachusetts Employers Urged To Join Together To Combat Opioid Epidemic


    A group of Massachusetts-based businesses have announced a new initiative to address the opioid epidemic.

    This coalition was formed by the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation in response to the organization’s research into the economic impact of the drug addiction crisis.

    The official kick-off of Mass. C.A.R.E.S. – an acronym for Communication and Awareness around Recovery programs and Employer Support – was today in Boston.

   WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation President Eileen McAnneny.
