Drug addiction continues to take a toll in Greater New Bedford. It can break up families, ruin lives, lead to crime and homelessness, and as we've seen with the opioid crisis, it can even bring about death. Jamie Casey is a caseworker for Positive Action Against Chemical Addiction, or PAACA. Jaime has pretty much seen it all in New Bedford, because he's been there. Jamie Casey talks with Townsquare Sunday host Jim Phillips this week about New Bedford's addiction problem, and what all of us can do to help save lives.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
