Know the Truth About Youth Drug Trends in Ramsey County

Please join us at this free event for community leaders, parents, and other concerned adults.

Last year, Ramsey County suffered 72 opioid overdoses.  In comparison, Hennepin County, which is more than double the size of Ramsey County, suffered 162.  These are record numbers and are devastating.  To combat this crisis, the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office, County Attorney’s Office, Local Law Enforcement, Schools, the Know the Truth Prevention Program and other local organizations have all come together to facilitate a community education forum.  This event is focused on building awareness of the local drug trends, specifically the opioid crisis – the goal is to bring the community together to learn ways to communicate with individuals who are struggling with substance use, and to develop tools to keep loved ones safe from the devastation that addiction can cause to a family and community.
