US drug czar to visit Vermont

Posted: Updated:

The nation's drug czar is coming to Vermont Monday to talk about opiates.

Gil Kerlikowski is the director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. He'll promote the use of evidence-based public health approaches to reduce drug use, including prevention, treatment and the use of Narcan, a life-saving overdose reversal drug.

Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell, U.S. Attorney Tris Coffin and other local officials will meet with Kerlikowski.
