By CHRISTINE JOHNSON When I tell people about the Chittenden County Opioid Alliance’s broad mission to reduce the impact of opioids on our communities, there is a predictable response: ‘Gosh, that sounds overwhelming.’ It’s repeated often that Vermont, and the country as a whole, is in the grips of an opioid epidemic, and while that is indeed the case – 64,000 Americans died of an overdose in 2016, with two-thirds attributable to opioids – the sheer magnitude can leave people feeling powerless to help.
