Several churches throughout the Knox County, TN area unite to help end the opioid crisis in East Tennessee and they hope more churches will unite together to help.
Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and pain relievers available legally by prescription, such as oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine, morphine, and many others.
Churches can often give help in paying some bills, food and other ways. Some churches even have Celebrate Recovery or other services to help those with additions.
