MJ Daly’s State Office Building project was not just a job site this week, but the kick-off point for a week-long “Stand Down” – construction suspension to draw attention to the problem of Opioid Abuse in the construction industry.

Governor Ned Lamont, Attorney General William Tong, as well as Connecticut Construction Industry Association and Union officials all spoke at the event.

The campaign called “You Are Not Alone: There Is Help” will travel across multiple Connecticut construction sites this week to help spread awareness.
