Mr. Bryan Ludwig, 
 
Thank you for testifying at the public hearing of the Joint Senate Task Force on Opioids, Addiction & Overdose Prevention this past Friday, November 15th. The experience and expertise conveyed through your testimony is invaluable to the efforts of the Task Force and our work to alleviate the impact that addiction has on our communities.     
 
As we know from the numerous, profound anecdotes delivered at this hearing, the impact of addiction is not limited to one demographic, one group, nor one community; the crisis is multifaceted and affects every segment of our society. It is with that recognition that we must work together, engage various stakeholders from across our state, and take a holistic approach to devise innovative solutions to this crisis.         
 
As we approach the 2020 legislative session, your continued engagement and partnership will be crucial in developing those solutions and uncovering how to best serve those impacted by addiction. I look forward to working with you as we continue this fight. Thank you again for your leadership and your willingness to share your testimony. 
 
Sincerely, 


 
Senator David Carlucci 38th Senate District
