New Hampshire Reps. Annie Kuster and Frank Guinta are hosting a roundtable discussion to help solve the growing heroin epidemic in their home state.

The representatives plan to discuss their Stop the Overdose Problem Already Becoming a Universal Substance Epidemic Act, which they introduced this month. The act proposes a comprehensive approach to treatment and stopping the nationwide heroin epidemic.

A panel is scheduled to provide feedback to the legislation and outline steps that local support services, law enforcement and Congress can take to help individuals and families affected by opioid addiction.

The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday at the New Hampshire Department of Safety in Concord.
