A Conversation About Heroin
Kim Ferris Rubenstein
How did we get to this place in history?
• Hundreds of lives are lost every day in the United States due to drug overdose.
• Approximately half of those overdoses involve heroin.
• Four out of five heroin users began with prescription drugs.
Together we will have a candid and thoughtful conversation about how we can build a culture of awareness and understanding, and help stem the tide of addiction.
