Connecticut U.S. Attorney’s Office release short film: The Opioid Crisis Hits Home

The Connecticut U.S. Attorney’s Office last month released a short film about the state’s opioid crisis titled “The Opioid Crisis Hits Home: Stories from Connecticut.”

The 15-minute films features interviews with law enforcement officials, medical professionals and community leaders. The video includes Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre M. Daly, who’s spearheaded initiatives investigating overdoses in the state.

“We at the U.S. Attorney’s Office are dedicating significant resources to help the medical and law-enforcement communities stamp out this deadly scourge,” a release with the video said. “This short film features parents who have lost children to drug overdoses, a young man who shares a courageous story of recovery, as well as doctors and law enforcement officials working on the front lines to end this widespread public health crisis.”
