Opioids Don't Discriminate: An Interactive Experience
From November 5-9, health professionals and members of the public from Strathcona County and area are invited to Opioids Don't Discriminate: An Interactive Experience. This event is hosted by Strathcona County Family & Community Services. It profiles local statistics and opioid information while immersing participants in an interactive journey through three different fictionalized character stories, based on the real-life experiences of those affected by opioid use. These stories will address the pervasive stigmas and judgements about people who use drugs, strengthen empathy and understanding, and humanize substance abuse and misuse statistics.
