Struggles and Strategies for Survival Beyond the Walls of Jail (National Network of Libraries of Medicine)

In this webinar Louie Diaz will share his own story of substance use disorder and incarceration as well as the work he is doing in the cities of Lowell and Lawrence, Massachusetts to address the addiction crisis. He will discuss what it was like to be followed by a film crew for 5 years as this documentary was being made. He will also share why this film is important as we begin to treat substance use disorder as a public health issue instead of a law enforcement issue. The NLM Resources related to substance use disorder that are highlighted during the webinar are MedlinePlus, Opiate Addiction and Treatment Portal, and the Graphic Medicine Book Club. Also, an extensive substance use disorder resource list that includes materials from NLM and partner organizations will also be made available with the recording link and webinar slides.
