Sun. Sept. 17 Journey to Recovery
Addiction to opioids, both prescription pain medications and heroin, are ravaging Kentucky, Ohio and the nation. More people die annually from drug overdoses than in car accidents. We’ll view part of KET’s Journey to Recovery for an in-depth look at the opioid crisis and how communities are responding, including some hopeful signs. Amy Monson will lead a discussion covering the stigma of addiction, understanding medication-assisted treatment, treatment behind bars, and recovery and the healing power of community.
