It's almost impossible to find someone in the local Detroit music scene who has not been touched by the loss of a friend or loved one who has become a casualty of the heroin epidemic.

With the appearance of fentanyl in the drugs on the street, it has become an overwhelming and terrifying fact that all current users and addicts are at risk of their next dose being fatal — current users are at risk of recieving a fatal shot and those in recovery are teetering on the knife's edge of their first relapse being their last. This absolutely has to stop and we need to figure out how to stop it, with or without help from the authorities.

We invite all who have an opinion or personal experience with this issue to come and voice their opinions, whether it's those who work in recovery, trauma, law or counseling — or former addicts that have practical «I wish I would have known then» information — the most valuable kind. We need to know what the hell to do when we find out that our friends have made some very unsafe choices.

It is no longer an option to sit on our hands and wait them to «figure it out,» «grow up,» or for «someone to do something» — as we watch them get taken away in handcuffs, in ambulances, or WORSE.

We'll have a microphone. If you would speak, we'll have a sign up sheet. We'll be recording the audio of this event in full to be reduced to anonymous transcripts which will form the backbone of a practical knowledge bank to be added to in future meetings of this type.

This is not about what a Perfect World 'would' be like.
This is not about Shaming.
This is about Search and Rescue activities,
about helping the wounded pull out of the war.

PLEASE SHARE THIS EVENT AND COME SHARE YOUR STORIES AND IDEAS.
WE CAN HELP OUR LOVED ONES WIN BEFORE WE LOSE THEM. WE CAN HELP.
WE CAN.
