The Problem with Opioids
Tuesday, April 19, 2016
Responding to the growing challenge of prescription opioid misuse, doctors across Virginia are working to develop common sense guidelines for prescribing opioids. In Virginia, statistics show more than 4,000 deaths have been reported in recent years due to fatal prescription opioid overdoses, and that a significant number of babies have been born after being exposed to such substances due to the mother’s substance misuse while pregnant. We invite you to share your own experiences overcoming opioid use at 440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240. You can also e-mail the program your stories at firstname.lastname@example.org or join us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/hearsaywithcathylewis.
