NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – New Hanover County’s Communications and Outreach Department has produced the second of six public service announcements (PSAs) aimed at raising awareness of the local opioid epidemic and its impact on the entire community.

The second PSA, which can be viewed below and on the county’s YouTube channel, features three local individuals telling about their experience with addiction. The PSA aims to humanize the opioid epidemic and break the denial about this crisis in our community.

You can view the county’s first opioid epidemic PSA here. This series is being created at the request of the New Hanover County Criminal Justice Advisory Group (CJAG). This group of committed leaders from the county and city, local law enforcement, the court system, and the District Attorney’s office are working to transform public safety across all sectors of the community to effect positive change.
