News Notes

Six in 10 Mainers know someone who has used heroin or abused prescribed opiate painkillers. The Portland Press Herald poll that was conducted by the University of New Hampshire shows roughly 780,000 Mainers have seen the crisis up close. The 60 percent figure is higher than the 44 percent in a recent Kaiser Health national survey who said they knew someone who abused heroin or opiates.
