THEOLOGY AT THE BOTTLEWORKS #175: The What, Why, and How of America's Opioid Crisis

  • Schlafly Bottleworks 7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, MO, 63143 United States (map)

THEOLOGY AT THE BOTTLEWORKS is a monthly public discussion that takes up the important issues of our times among an amazing diversity of interesting people and views. Join the conversation this month for our topic: The What, Why and How of America’s Opioid Crisis.  America's rate of opioid-related deaths has been rising since the 1990s; on an average day, 130 Americans die by opioid overdose.  In what ways has the narrative surrounding the opioid crisis been similar or different from that of other drugs in America?  What is causing this crisis, and who bears responsibility for it? How should the country, and we as individuals, move forward to both save lives in the near term and address the root issues causing opioid addiction in the long term? Come have a brew, share your view, and lend an ear to others.'
