The city of Quincy held an open forum this week to talk about the opiate epidemic.

DiBona wants education to start in middle school and Quincy resident and recovering addict Mark Giordani who spoke at the forum last night agrees.

According to the state department of public health, in 2016 there have been over 2,000 opioid related deaths in Massachusetts.
