Listen to my Uncle Linnie about his story of injecting drugs and recent overdose experience. This interview contains explicit content.
Capturing these images of a relative were emotionally challenging – but the bigger picture is to break the stigma and bring awareness about people who inject drugs.
The opioid overdose epidemic in the U.S. is continuing to increase. This epidemic is causing over 115 people to lose their lives each day to prescription opioids, fentanyl, and heroin from all demographic groups. If you know someone dealing with opioid abuse please assist your loved one to seek treatment.
