On Friday, February 23, local harm reduction organization The Steady Collective will host an Opioid Overdose Community Forum from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Haywood Street Congregation in Downtown Asheville.
The forum will feature a panel of harm reduction professionals who work in syringe exchanges, overdose prevention programs, and homeless outreach services. They will talk about what they are seeing on the ground in Western North Carolina and what they are doing to support people during a devastating overdose crisis. Time will be allotted for questions and for an exchange of ideas about ways to address overdose in the coming year and provide care for the people most impacted.
The panelists will include:
Adrienne Sigmon, BeLoved Asheville
Tracey Childers, WNCAP
Michel Guicheney, Steady Collective/Sunrise Peer Support
Hillary Brown, Steady Collective
