The Opiod Crisis.. Educate yourself at this interactive exhibit.

Published

The Opiod Crisis is overwhelming communities and families all over the world. Red Deer has not escaped the grip of these easily obtained, highly addictive drugs.

While communities everywhere struggle to deal with this crisis, the first step is understanding just what is happening. As much as we talk about opiods, for the most part the general population is suffering from a lack of understanding.

Well here’s your chance to learn just what is happening. This eye-opening exhibit will help you understand how this crisis is ‘much’ larger than you thought..

This week at Red Deer College, you can visit “Opioids Don’t Discriminate”. It’s an interactive exhibit showing the different realities of people who suffer opioids addiction.

You will follow the path of three fictional characters, Natasha, David and Max. But all three are based on the real-life experiences of people affected by opioid use.

The most powerful part of all this.. you will definitely see yourself or someone you love in these people!

No idea what I’m supposed to write here, let’s just describe where I am, I guess. There’s a lot of water in this room. Quite a few windows, too. Only one coffee stirring stick thingy though. Oh, look. The door says “Employees only.”

Whoops. That race car picture is crooked. Is it supposed to be? I don’t know. Wonder where that unplugged cord goes. There are nails up on that wall… Wonder what used to go there. Alright, enough nitpicking. Time to find some picture or other to stick in here. There. Found me on Google maps. I’m right in that corner office there. They really should get rid of those Weight Loss Clinic signs… I guess that isn’t really their first priority. Looks like enough. Let’s post it.

From The Central Alberta Humane Society

Hey, I’m Bear, last year’s photo contest WINNER! I had so much fun
taking pictures for the CAHumane calendar with Kimberly from
Chic & Grace Studios! Just look at me, her pictures are sooo beautiful!
But that’s not even the best part, by entering me in the
Calendar Photo Contest & voting, I helped raised money for shelter
animals who aren’t as lucky as me to have a loving home, but I know
they will get one soon with your help!

Your pet could be this year’s calendar cover star but first you have to
enter your furry family member into the contest for only $5 & vote, vote, vote!

They could earn one of 12 spots (6 voted, 6 selected by judges) in the
CAHumane 2020 Calendar! It is such a fun way to donate to animals in
care. Not only that but my mom won awesome prizes too & got to take
home gorgeous professional photos of me!

Check out the Calendar contest HERE to enter & don’t forget to read about the rules & prizes! On behalf of animals in care, THANK YOU!
