Opioids: Crisis in the Northland
Send this via e-mail
Opioid overdoses are killing more people in St. Louis County per capita than anywhere else in Minnesota. As the death toll mounts, so do the social and economic impacts in our region, in communities both large and small, tragically altering the lives of individuals and families.
How do we respond to this crisis as a community? How is it affecting our healthcare system, law enforcement services, courts, schools and homes? What can we learn from stories of success and recovery? How do we connect people to resources of help and hope?
WDSE • WRPT, with the generous support of St. Luke’s, will harness the power of story-driven public media across this six-part TV series, as well as podcasts in the coming months, to continue the powerful conversation around opioids and our community. You can also look for a digital series this winter, supported by Community Memorial Hospital. WDSE • WRPT would also like to thank Essentia Health for their support in kicking off this series with a townhall meeting this fall.
