About

Metro Drug Coalition is excited to present DOPESICK: Beyond the Book and Series. This panel discussion will feature Beth Macy, the author of the national best-selling book Dopesick, and Stephen Loyd, an East Tennessee physician featured in the book and series, as well as other panelists to be announced at a later date. This event will explore how Hollywood's dramatization is Knoxville's reality. Join us as we discuss how the epicenter of America's struggle with opioid addiction started in our own backyard.

All proceeds from this event will benefit The Gateway, Knoxville's first Community Recovery Center opening in downtown Knoxville in Spring 2022. The Gateway will connect individuals and families to social and community resources, serve those who wish to uncover their unique path to long-term sustainable recovery, and give people the opportunity to give back to others as they strengthen their own recovery.

Buy tickets before January 24 to receive early bird pricing of $35.00. Beginning January 25, tickets will be $40.00.
