Can We Solve the Opioid Epidemic?
“It’s less about the drug of choice now and more about drug abuse. It’s more of a drug epidemic than it is an opioid epidemic right now. They’ll take anything they can get.” Alan McGill is a Senior Supervisory Special Agent – who has previously worked as an undercover narcotics agent – within Pennsylvania’s Office of the Attorney General. Agent McGill has been a professional investigator for over 30 years with 23 years in law enforcement. Today he joins “Tartan Talks” to discuss his experience as an undercover agent and recovery advocate – and share his thoughts on the future of the opioid epidemic. With more than three decades of experience, McGill earned his bachelor’s degree from Edinboro University in 2020.
