Opioids – What Parents Need to Know

When it comes to opioid addiction, Midland is not immune. Too many people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond are dying from opioid overdose. The Legacy Center is doing it’s part to change the equation, and we’re starting with our youth. Earlier this year, we set out to educate local high school students. The school districts have been great partners in this effort. But we wouldn’t be doing our job, if we didn’t speak to parents, too. So we’re hosting this town hall meeting to have an open dialogue about this issue. Our goal is to make sure today’s students don’t become tomorrow’s tragegies. I’m sure you will agree that this is an admirable goal.

Stigmatic: A Documentary About Our Local Opioid Crisis

“Stigmatic: Our Opioid Crisis” is composed of interviews with those impacted by opiates, including law enforcement, medical professionals, and people in recovery of Bay County, Mich. Their frank discussions highlight disagreements inside the activist community over controversial new strategies to combat the opiate epidemic. Each diverse perspective points to an undeniable obstacle at the center of the crisis: stigma.
