The opioid epidemic remains a crisis in America, and has been compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The pandemic has created social conditions – no jobs, isolation, despair – that helped enable the opioid crisis to emerge in the first place.
Making things even worse is the scourge of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid similar to morphine, but 50 to 100 times more potent.
Deaths from synthetic opioid overdose were more than 11 times higher in 2019 than in 2013, and are accelerating.
We are losing a generation to this disease.
Dennis lost his battle on 2/6/18.
Join us at The Center on October 17th to raise awareness–to humanize addiction–and to help support the Pathway Program at The Center.
There is no entry fee, but you are encouraged to raise money to support those struggling with addiction, and their families. Last year we raised over $20,000 for the Pathway Program.
.We will follow the in-place CDC and Illinois guidelines for this event.
