Fentanyl Overdoses Inspires Action from Survivors, Narcan Advocates

Conversations about overdoses and overdose deaths are not the easiest to have, but the dialogue is necessary to help decrease the occurrence of both. There are several substances—illicit or prescription drugs—that are problematic. The one that rarely seems to provide second chances to first-time users, however, is an unknown and lethal amount of fentanyl arbitrarily mixed with other substances that have led to fentanyl overdoses.

To mark International Overdose Awareness Day, Joy Sutton, host of American Addiction Centers’ (AAC’s) talk show, Addiction Talk, moderated an exceptional panel of supporters in the fight against addiction and overdose.

The panel consisted of:

  • Cammie Wolf Rice, author of The Fight: My Opioid Journey.
  • Jake Arther, overdose survivor.
  • Dr. Mark Calarco, addiction expert.
  • Carla Sloke, overdose survivor.
  • Phillip Van Guilder, Narcan® advocate.
