Written for members of the public, Opioid Epidemic: How Communities Can Respond addresses the growing opioid epidemic from the perspective of funeral professionals who have seen the devastating impact that addiction has on families. As the issue threatens to overload many municipal and social service agencies, this community-wide problem will eventually touch everyone’s life in some way.

The easy-to-read 44-page booklet offers information and tips on: understanding opioid addiction and how it differs from other addictions; the challenges families face as loved ones struggle with opioid addiction and the complicated grief they often experience when loved ones lose their struggle; responses families can choose including funeral planning in cases where their loved ones die from overdoses; and ways that community members can work together to address this growing epidemic.

Every order of 25 or more booklets can be labeled with the funeral home’s logo for an additional $1/booklet (sorry—labeling not available for non-members).

Order the Amazon Kindle version for $4.99.

Are you aware that opiate residue the size of a grain of salt can kill a member of your prep room staff? Could you spot a funeral home guest about to go into a drug overdose coma? Is your staff trained to use NARCAN®?  If you're like most funeral professionals, you answered no to those questions. OGR created a 44-page booklet entitled Opioid Epidemic: How Funeral Directors Can Respond to give you and your staff information to help prepare for the devastating results of opioid addiction in your community and in your funeral home.
