A State of Addiction: Utah's Opioid Epidemic

28 September 2017 Published in News and Updates

AUCH is proud to underwrite the upcoming Utah Public Radio Original (UPR) Series, "A State of Addiction: Utah's Opioid Epidemic." UPR journalists have been traveling around the state for several months learning how the opioid epidemic is affecting our state and local communities. 

In preparation for the new series, the award-winning Utah Public Radio production team will be hosting a number of outreach events around Utah.

UPR will be in Moab, Price and Vernal on Oct. 3-5, 2017. At each event, there will be a screening of the documentary "Dying In Vein: The Opiate Generation" followed by a Q&A with a panel of local experts. 

Before the screening, we welcome anybody to come to an open house where they can mingle with organizations from the community. This is an opportunity to ask questions, collect literature and meet other people at the event. Also, come and enjoy some famous Aggie Ice Cream (until supplies last).
