The Attorney General’s Efforts to Address the Opioids Crisis Can Benefit Older Vermonters

March 26, 2019

Nationally, older individuals are uniquely impacted by the opiate crisis. They are housing, taking care of, and helping to financially support opiate-addicted adult children. They are helping raise grandchildren whose parents are struggling with addiction. Some are victims of drug diversion. Some are victims of financial exploitation by opiate-addicted family members or friends. Some are struggling with opiate-addiction, themselves. For these reasons, among others, the EPI supports the Attorney General’s ongoing efforts to address the opiate crisis in Vermont. To read more about these ongoing litigation efforts:
