Opioids: Real People. Real Stories. Real Science

Thursday, October 25 @ 1PM ET/10AM PT

Your students may dream of being a pro athlete, a scientist, or of just making good grades. No one dreams of becoming addicted to drugs, but all across America, students’ dreams are being derailed by opioids.

No matter how it begins, recovery from addiction is a struggle. Give middle and high school students the information they need about how addiction can start in this impactful conversation with real people whose lives have been interrupted by opioids.

Students will meet-

  • Two retired NFL players who understand the pressure to play through pain and now focus their efforts on giving alternative pain management options to young athletes.
  • A musician who played at Carnegie Hall before becoming addicted and now supports musicians who are in recovery.
  • Three generations affected by opioid addiction who define the far-reaching impact of this crisis.

Join us for these powerful stories of loss, triumph, and learning on Thursday, October 25.
