Grand Forks leaders hope a community wide Call to Action builds momentum for combating substance abuse addiction and the opioid epidemic. The city is partnering on a survey and meeting later this month to draw more attention to the issue. The survey is intended to gauge public opinion on current resources and effectiveness to intervention and steps needed to address addiction. Council member Sandi Marshall says it’s a difficult problem.

Grand Forks police reported drug/narcotic busts jumped 40-percent in 2016….. arrests for possession of drugs climbed 62-percent.

The community meeting is set for May 25th at the Alerus Center.
