Opioid Epidemic and Debunking Myths
When: Thursday, March 21, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Calvary Church (LC-1300 Auditorium) — 5801 Pineville-Matthews Rd.
The Bridging the Difference community engagement series will tackle a tough subject in our community — opioids.
What are opioids? Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl and pain relievers available legally by prescription such as oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine, morphine and many others.
There is so much misinformation and misunderstanding out there —- stigmas and stereotypes. This is a real issue in our community, and Bridging the Difference is tackling this in March.
Join us for an evening of education and understanding as we continue Bridging the Difference.
