Field of Honor
Mansfield Police and Mansfield Gridiron Club hosted an Opiate Awareness Night at the MHS Auditorium on Monday, June 6th.
School Resource Officers Wright and Connor, along with organizers from the Gridiron Club of Mansfield are proud to have Cory Palazzi as the keynote speaker.
Cory was a prominent student athlete and National Honor Society student at Taunton High School who suffered a shoulder injury for which he was
prescribed pain killers.
He found himself addicted to the prescription opiates and later heroin.
After Cory and his family share their story, there will be light refreshments in the cafeteria and an open discussion for anyone who has questions.
It is no secret that the Commonwealth has seen an unprecedented increase in opioid use and, consequently, opioid-related deaths over the last four years.
According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, unintentional opioid-related deaths in the Commonwealth rose from 668 in 2012 to 1,526 in 2015.
The DPH tracks opiates prescribed to patients in each county.
In the first quarter of 2016, there were 37,439 individuals receiving Schedule II Opioids, that's 6.8& of the population.
This isn't someone else's problem. This is happening here.
For 1 in 15 people, misuse of prescription pain medication leads to heroin use within 10 years.
