Portsmouth police release video to get people talking about drug epidemic


PORTSMOUTH - Police have released a public service video on the drug epidemic called: "It's Time, Let's Talk."

The release on Thursday was timed to coincide with September as National Recovery Month, police said.

Producers Michael Venn and Karline Lyons helped coordinate the project which features Sandi Coyle of New Futures, Portsmouth City Councilor Stefany Shaheen, John Eldredge of Bonfire Recovery Services and Marci Blanchette of the Portsmouth High School.

"The Portsmouth police hope this video will help continue the talk on how to best combat the issues that we all face regarding the fallout of substance abuse, especially opiate-related abuse," the department said in a news release, adding that they hope to reduce the stigma and encourage more people to seek help.
