The Hero in Heroin is proud to partner with Dr. Mehmet Oz, Facing Addiction and Drugs Over Dinner in a campaign called #nightofconversation, a national project to get families talking about drugs.
November 10th, Dr. Mehmet Oz will once again shine a spotlight on the addiction crisis sweeping the country. U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and actress Mackenzie Phillips will join the nationally syndicated show.
Tuesday’s Dr. Oz show will describe a project, in conjunction with Facing Addiction (FacingAddiction.org) and Drugs Over Dinner (DrugsOverDinner.org) to hold a National Night of Conversation on Thursday, November 19th.
On this night, we are asking folks to have a conversation about addiction with the people around their dinner tables. The Dr. Oz Show team developed a parental discussion guide to help with the conversation. It can be found at DoctorOz.com. The guide was created with assistance from Facing Addiction, SAMHSA, NIDA, and the National Council on Behavioral Health.
The empty dinner plate symbolizes support for this national turning point in our willingness to face addiction and indicates that this particular meal is not about the food. It’s about the conversation.
