In my summer tradition of reading relevant books …. a book about the rise in opiate addiction in America. Centers for Disease Control states that “91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.” Also, by 2008, drug overdoses surpassed car deaths, as the leading cause of accidental deaths in this country. From a small town in Mexico to the boardrooms of Big Pharma, an explosive and shocking account of addiction and black tar heroin in the heartland of America. Participants must buy their own copy of the book before the class starts. For more information, contact April Spencer at or 828.774.5681, ext. 20.  Contact Hours:  20
