The Heroin Epidemic: A Community Conversation says
MOHAI presents an important community conversation examining the region’s growing heroin and prescription opiate epidemic. In King County, more people now enter detox for heroin than they do for alcohol. Families are being devastated as the number of opiate-related deaths has tripled since 2009.

What must be done to address this growing epidemic?

KCTS 9’s Enrique Cerna will take on that question and much more with King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg, Penny Legate, founder of the Marah Project, Dr. Caleb-Banta Green of the University of Washington’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute, and Molly Carney, Executive Director of Evergreen Treatment Services, along with other experts and individuals affected by the heroin epidemic.

Cost: This event is open to the public and free with preregistration.
