BPTIamU is a program by the Bridgeport Department of Health and Social Services to help people learn about opioid addiction and the help available. It's for people who are struggling with addiction or in the process of recovering, and for their loved ones. Our goal is to teach people and reduce the negative ideas some people have about addiction through resources, graphics, and videos. Our videos include people who are fighting addiction, stories of people who have recovered, and leaders who are working to stop this problem. Watch below!
