In the news: Families haunted by opioid deaths seek answers, change via the Star Tribune

Montevideo native Casey Jo Schulte, who died at 26, was a 'victim of opiate overprescribing,' her mother says.
Unfortunately, another article in the news about a grieving family and how addiction to opiates has claimed yet another young life. 
“Please fight for those who not only die from this mass epidemic, but for those who are currently living it,” Elkington wrote. “Casey Jo never feared dying from her medications, she feared not having them. Reform will come too late for Casey Jo. Which makes me so very sad, but please help others with these guidelines. Please.”
