THE OPIOID CRISIS: The Faith Community Responds


Workshop Facilitated by Elizabeth Brewington

In 2018, 6 North Carolinians a day died due to an unintentional medication or drug overdose. As people of faith we are called to respond to this overdose crisis with compassion and fight the stigma that is so prevalent when it comes to drug use. This session covered basics of what is going on in the state and country when it comes to the overdose crisis, what is harm reduction, how harm reduction connects to our faith, and ways that faith communities can respond to this crisis.
