November 28th Luncheon: Dr. Matthew Keene to Speak on the Opioid Crisis
November is the month when Americans honor our veterans.
As we honor our veterans this 11th month of 2018, we need to be mindful of their struggles. Join us on November 28th, as Dr. Matthew Keene educates us on the topic of opioids and their impact on our veterans as well as our country’s general population. Dr. Keene is a veteran of the military himself and has committed his life to assisting individuals in overcoming their addictions.
The opioid crisis, which killed more than 42,000 Americans in 2016, continues to devastate the country. And our veterans may be one of the populations hardest hit. Over the last eight or so years, opioid statistics suggest veterans are twice as likely to die from accidental opioid overdoses than non-veterans. In addition, treating veterans’ chronic pain almost exclusively with opioids has led to addictions and a fatal overdose rate twice the national average.
Join us on November 28th to find out more about this far-reaching problem devastating our nation.
