Suburban State’s Attorneys Take On The Opioid Crisis

Last week, Morning Shift looked at the opioid crisis inside Chicago, specifically how it’s affecting communities of color. Today we’re moving farther out from the city to the “collar counties”. Today we talk with the state’s attorneys from DuPage and Lake counties to find out how the epidemic is affecting those areas, and what’s being done to stem the tide of addiction, overdoses, and deaths.
