The Center for Recovering Students present "The Bitter Pill: Montana Lives Affected by Rx Abuse"
- Friday, March 31, 2017 to Wednesday, April 5, 2017, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm
"The Bitter Pill" is a collection of artwork donated by survivors of prescription drug addiction that touchingly expresses the struggle, loss, and extreme cost of Rx abuse. The goal of this exhibit is to start a positive community conversation about the problem of prescription drug abuse from the perspective of those most affected. The exhibit will also feature the resources and outreach that is available in Gallatin County for individuals struggling with addiction. Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem in Montana, and prescription opiate abuse has been linked to heroin use. This problem affects people of all ages, backgrounds, income brackets, and walks of life. Join us in our health outreach to bring this conversation into our community, and discover ways to help each other recover and build a better Montana. “Bitter Pill: Montana Lives Affected by Rx Abuse" was developed by the Drug Enforcement Administration and Montana U.S. Attorney’s Office in cooperation with Resolve Montana, and is brought to Bozeman and hosted by The Center For Recovering Students at MSU, Gallatin City-County Dept. of Health, The Elks Lodge Drug Awareness Program, and other community partners.
Where: Elks Lodge #463 at 205 Haggerty Lane, Suite 160, Bozeman.
