JUNEAU - A meeting is scheduled next week to discuss community solutions to Juneau's battle with the prescription painkiller OxyContin, a highly-addictive synthetic drug similar to morphine in its effects.

The meeting, scheduled for April 29 at 5:30 p.m. at the Thunder Mountain High School Red Wing Commons, is sponsored by Students Assistance Counselors at Juneau-Douglas High School. The meeting is a follow-up to an earlier forum on prescription drugs.
