Citizen Action Says More Drug Screenings Needed
In the face of rising heroin and pain killer addiction that stateofficials are calling a public health crisis, Citizen Action of Wisconsin is launching an initiative to increase access to effective screening and intervention services for youth. Kevin Kane is with Citizen Action.
Wisconsin was one of five states selected for the project to improve insurance coverage for early screening and intervention services, increase the number and types of locations where youth can access those services, and boost the number and type of professionals who can conduct screening and brief intervention. Mostly used so far in southeastern Wisconsin.
