The Opiate Crisis: Stories and Solutions
September 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join Vermont PBS for a screening and panel discussion of ‘Here Today’, a documentary film by Bess O’Brien exploring heroin and the effects of addiction on families in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.
The Opiate Crisis: Stories and Solutions is a state-wide event that includes two television film broadcasts, a live television panel discussion, and three in-person film screenings and robust discussions around the opiate crisis in Vermont. Each event at the Vermont PBS Studios in Colchester, Latchis Theater in Brattleboro, The Rutland High School, and Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury, will include a live audience interacting with a panel representing the medical, social work, advocacy, enforcement, prevention and recovery communities. Together, these events will explore what we have learned over the last decade about opiate addiction, what has changed, what treatments and preventions are having real impact, and what we can do better. Each panel includes people in recovery and people on the front lines, as well as experts who will speak about statewide and local initiatives aimed at taking on the crisis.
