Addiction

What can the State of Wisconsin do to address the epidemic of opioid and heroin addiction?

As of 2017, the Wisconsin State Legislature has passed 28 pieces of legislation related to the Heroin, Opioid Prevention and Education (HOPE) Agenda. In this lesson students will learn more about the nationwide crisis related to heroin and opioid addiction, analyze the root causes of the crisis, and evaluate the existing legislation in Wisconsin. Finally, students will create their own HOPE Agenda for future action, and compare this to the plans already in place for future legislation in the state.
