The ongoing and seemingly insurmountable crisis of opioid addiction and overdose is being confronted head on by some local heroes.

One of them is Morris County Sheriff Jim Gannon. Jim's launching a new initiative this morning and joined us to announce the program. The new initiative is called "Hope One," a mobile unit that the sheriff's office will take out on the road, essentially going door-to-door, to hopefully provide help to those in need.

You can listen to Jim Gannon's announcement in the YouTube clip below.
