Adam D. Flager Steps Into VP of Libertae to Help Fight Opioid Crisis
Adam D. Flager recently stepped into the role of Vice President of the Board of Libertae, an organization that treats and supports women who suffer from substance abuse disorders. After serving as an active board member for two years, Adam hopes to bring a breath of fresh air in his new role. He is also a member of the Quality Assurance Committee, which handles personnel and policy matters within the organization.
The opioid crisis has been a growing problem in Pennsylvania for years. In 2016 alone, there were 2,235 opioid-related overdose deaths, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Unfortunately, this trend has continued with opioid addiction increasing year after year. As a lawyer who handles personal injury and motor vehicle cases, Adam wanted to make more of an effort to put a stop to the accidents that opioid drugs can cause.
Libertae strives to change lives by creating an environment that supports the specific needs of women addicted to opioids, alcohol and other substances. Their facility serves as a long-term residential halfway house that provides outpatient services, including a treatment center that opened last year. This recent expansion gave Libertae the ability to offer more Pennsylvania residents the help that they needed, impacting the opioid epidemic in a positive way. This is all part of an effort to reduce opioid dependency and thereby reduce associated injuries, accidents and deaths.
Adam is proud to be part of Libertae’s efforts to help those struggling with addiction get sober and stay sober. In Adam’s words: “It is our hope that one day, instead of representing people in personal injury cases caused by opioid drug abusers, we can put an end to the epidemic that causes these types of accidents, injuries and deaths once and for all.”
