Closed Session: A Systems Approach to the Opioids Crisis in Our Region
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.
You need this ticket from Eventbrite to sign up: Summit Badge - Advance Badge.
Our nation is facing an opioid crisis of unprecedented measure. Here in Virginia, more residents die from overdose than from car accidents each year. Research on community initiatives to address opioids indicates that a systemic response is critical for success. According to the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, “The complexity of the opioid crisis requires medical, legislative, behavioral, educational, and legal changes, and it requires that these changes be made in coordination with each other, at the same time. Communities will succeed only if they engage and align all actors to create systems that can prevent new individuals from becoming dependent on opioids, while supporting the recovery of those who already are.”

This panel will offer an overview of this kind of approach and local data about the scope of the crisis.

Founders Luncheon: Dopesick - Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company That Addicted America
Limited Capacity filling up
You need this ticket from Eventbrite to sign up: Founders Luncheon: Dopesick - Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company That Addicted America.
From the New York Times bestselling author of Factory Man comes the only book to fully chart the opioid crisis in America-an unforgettable portrait of the families and first responders on the front lines.

In this masterful work, Beth Macy takes us into the epicenter of America's twenty-plus year struggle with opioid addiction. From distressed small communities in Central Appalachia to wealthy suburbs; from disparate cities to once-idyllic farm towns; it's a heartbreaking trajectory that illustrates how this national crisis has persisted for so long and become so firmly entrenched.

Beginning with a single dealer who lands in a small Virginia town and sets about turning high school football stars into heroin overdose statistics, Macy endeavors to answer a grieving mother's question-why her only son died-and comes away with a harrowing story of greed and need. From the introduction of OxyContin in 1996, Macy parses how America embraced a medical culture where overtreatment with painkillers became the norm. In some of the same distressed communities featured in her bestselling book Factory Man, the unemployed use painkillers both to numb the pain of joblessness and pay their bills, while privileged teens trade pills in cul-de-sacs, and even high school standouts fall prey to prostitution, jail, and death.
Through unsparing, yet deeply human portraits of the families and first responders struggling to ameliorate this epidemic, each facet of the crisis comes into focus. In these politically fragmented times, Beth Macy shows, astonishingly, that the only thing that unites Americans across geographic and class lines is opioid drug abuse. But in a country unable to provide basic healthcare for all, Macy still finds reason to hope-and signs of the spirit and tenacity necessary in those facing addiction to build a better future for themselves and their families.
