Every day, it’s estimated that more than 130 people die from an opioid-related drug overdose in the United States. In 2018, it was estimated that 2 million people had an opioid use disorder. These are a few of the scary statistics we often hear in connection to the opioid epidemic.
But hope is alive in the recovery community. Every day people enter recovery from opioid addiction, and when they do there are others in recovery waiting to support them.
On Transforming Health: Recovery Is Possible we’ll hear stories from those recovering from opioid addiction and learn how and why many of them say they’re living lives beyond their wildest dreams.
Join us for a new episode of Transforming Health Thursday, November 21 at 8:00pm on WITF.
