Opioid crisis in the Lehigh Valley: Fewer overdose deaths, an uptick in alcohol and meth, wave of infectious diseases on the horizon

One year after the Morning Call completed its in-depth roundtable series, “Opioids: A Community Crisis,” we invited four experts to the newsroom to get an update on the state of the opioid crisis in the Valley. The good news? Opioid overdose death rates in the Lehigh Valley appear to be holding steady. The bad news? Doctors say a wave of infectious diseases spread through intravenous drug use is on the horizon, and methamphetamine and alcohol use is rising.
