What is American Opioid?

American Opioid is a crowdsourced encyclopedia of the opioid crisis that will allow the public to understand how it was experienced in all fifty states from a variety of perspectives. These firsthand accounts will be in text and/or audio format. Anyone who has an experience to share is encouraged to contribute.

American Opioid also features a riveting, research-backed fictional narrative about the opioid crisis, freely available to the public as a podcast. A second podcast, Opioid Voices, will feature interviews with real-life individuals.

American Opioid helps the public understand the opioid crisis: its origins, its consequences, and the efforts by extraordinary individuals to alleviate it and save lives.
