We Want Your Story
American Opioid is a crowdsourced encyclopedia of the opioid crisis that will allow the public to understand how it was experienced in all 50 states from a variety of perspectives: state legislators, public health officials, doctors, journalists, attorneys, opioid safety coalitions, municipalities, etc.
Contributing to this encyclopedia will make you part of history. Future historians will read the words you submitted and listen to the audio you recorded. They will rely on your contemporaneous observations to help them understand the opioid crisis. If you're interested in contributing any audio or participating in an interview, please contact Amanda Hiraishi, the Executive Producer of Opioid Voices, at
