AUCH is proud to underwrite the 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 this 13-part series, UPR explores the issue of opioids in Utah - hear people’s stories, dissect the complexities and explore possible solutions. New episodes air every week on Utah Public Radio.

In their research, they have discovered many of you have a personal story about the appeal and devastation of opioids. Maybe you are the user or it could be a loved one. For many reasons, UPR wants to give you a chance to share your thoughts, fears... your story. Click here to find out more.
