O - Art & Awareness
An event to build awareness and prevention against Opioid Overdose and Addiction.
What are Opioids?
Opioids (also sometimes called narcotics) are powerful substances related to chemicals found in the opium poppy plant. Some opioids are used medically for pain relief, but an overdose can cause respiratory depression (your breathing becomes slow or stops) and death. Opioids are highly addictive, and opioid addiction and overdose deaths are a growing problem throughout the United States. https://health.arlingtonva.us/opioid-awareness/
