CARIBOU, Maine — The need for a detoxification center in Aroostook County was one clear message that came from a public forum held Thursday night to address community concerns over the rising number of drug overdoses.

Aroostook County has been facing an increasingly worse drug problem in recent years, especially opioid use disorder, heroin and a crystal methamphetamine cross with fentanyl.
