The discussion begins with the story of a Minnesota woman and her fall into heroin use, the moment when she realized she was ready for treatment, and why she is using her lived experience to help others. She, along with other community advocates, discuss their efforts to reverse the growing overdose trend among Black Minnesotans, and provide resources and treatments that are culturally specific.
