Abstract

Since 2000, more than 770% increase in treatment of opiate addiction according to Governor Shumlin’s Vermont annual address. On July 11, 2014, there was a shooting incident in Springfield, Vt., that injured a convicted drug dealer and wounded two other people was triggered by a dispute over heroin. This project aimed to create an educational and interactive pamphlet that can be used in the Family Practice office at Springfield Health Center and beyond in order to encourage dialogue and de-stigmatize heroin use recovery.
