Broward officials say a new map offers a hard look at how devastating the opioid epidemic has been in South Florida.
The map, prepared and made public by Broward County on Wednesday, is meant to show how widespread the problem has become in the community.
“The public gets a visual of just how serious this is,” said Dr. Craig Mallak, Broward County’s medical examiner. “They hear about it and just see numbers. This really brings it home to your neighborhood.”
