The Nashville Voice Publisher Jerry L. Maynard talked with former Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, who shared the work she is doing to help fight the opioid crisis in Nashville and beyond. Barry, who lost her son Max to an overdose last year, discusses just how addictive opioids are and how people who cannot afford opioids turn to heroin and fentanyl. “This is a health crisis for all communities,” said Barry, who suggested that people should discard prescription drugs they are no longer taking. “There are resources, but they are slim.”
