Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro met with workers at Greenbriar Treatment Center in North Strabane Township on Tuesday to discuss how a recent multibillion-dollar settlement with pharmaceutical companies can help them fight the opioid epidemic that continues to claim lives.

Shapiro came to Washington County to tout the nationwide $26 billion settlement in July with three pharmaceutical distributors and one opioid manufacturer, with $1 billion earmarked for Pennsylvania to aid treatment centers like Greenbriar helping people to battle their addiction.
