Officials claim that a new program aimed at helping those struggling through the opioid epidemic will be discussed in a press conference Monday morning in the New Britain Police Department.
The press conference on Monday at 11:00 a.m. in New Britain.
Through the initiative, officers can choose to get a person into treatment instead of charging them with drug possession.
Patients will be offered a recovery coach and other services.
The Hospital of Central Connecticut is teaming up with several towns and agencies to launch the initiative.
