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.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
