About:

Colorado's drug fatalities passed 1,000 in 2017 for the first time ever -- hundreds more deaths than the state's traffic death toll for the year.

And most of those deaths can blamed on opioids -- prescription painkillers and their illicit cousin, heroin.

Given the record-breaking death toll, new approaches are needed to prevent overdoses, no matter the drug.

On Sept. 25, The Gazette and KKTV will cohost a Community Conversation on Opioids and Addiction with experts who can tell us what we must do to stop this crisis.
