Each week several dozen people in Maryland die from opioid use. Last summer, Nicki Neirman, a nursing staff coordinator, lost her fiance to a heroin overdose. She tells us of his episodes of treatment, and how his addiction disrupted their lives.

And Donna Jacobs, a senior vice president at the University of Maryland Medical System, tells us about next Wednesday's conference on substance abuse and recovery called, “Not All Wounds Are Visible”. 

You can RSVP for the free community conference to be held November 29th at the UMB Campus Center here.
