Through engaging exercises and dramatic video Outlook on Opioids will answer the following questions: What are opioids? What is this opioid crisis? What is the difference between overdose and poisoning? What do the experts say? What kind of treatment is available for those addicted to opioids? What happens to babies when their mothers use opioids? What are the current statistics? How can we stop the crisis?
