Join us and our panel of experts for a community discussion on high opioid use in Oklahoma, it's history, and resources for individuals and families.

Join the Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library as we host a community discussion to examine the high rates of opioid addition in Oklahoma, how this happened, what's being done about the issue, and resources for organizations and families.

  1. Our panel of experts include Oklahoma Senator Candidate Darrell Weaver, former Director of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control, Dr. Indrajeet Sharma, Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Univeristy of Oklahoma, whose research includes developing non-opioid-based drug leads, Dr. Samuel Martin, the head of Addition Medicine at OSU CHS, and a member of FATE, Fighting Addiction Through Education, a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate the general public on substance abuse and addiction in Oklahoma.

According to the 2014 State Health report, Oklahoma’s unintentional injury death rate increased by nearly 50% from 2000 to 2012. Two of the leading causes of unintentional injury death include poisonings and falls. 81% of unintentional poisoning deaths involved at least one prescription drug, and of those deaths, nearly 90% were related to prescription painkillers.

This program is made possible through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.

Registration is encouraged but not required.
