DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — The Delphi community gathered to discuss solutions to the growing opioid epidemic.

The public forum included members of law enforcement, lawyers and representatives for addiction services. The event aimed to provide solutions for individuals and families in need.

Jennifer and Dustin Noonkester have been directly affected by the epidemic. They spoke to raise awareness after losing their son.

"It's hard to get everybody on the same page. That's ok in my opinion because what happens is when you have all of these different opinions, that forces you to have a conversation," said Noonkester. "When you have a conversation, that helps with finding results."

Dustin and Jennifer started an organization called "Brady's Hope" in their son's name. Their goal is to raise awareness about all drug addictions.
