ST. LOUIS – Opioid addiction has impacted many families nationwide, including St. Louis City. A local woman who lost multiple family members to overdose is raising awareness of the opioid crisis with a walk/run event in Forest Park on Saturday morning.
“We really want people in the community to understand what opiates are and to actually understand symptoms so they can help their family,” said Angela Claybon, Care STL Health CEO.
Care STL Health hosts the Project O -Opioid Awareness Walk. Clabon is one of many who have been devastated by this epidemic, which is why she created this free event, now in its second year.

Drugs Claim More Black Lives Than Guns Do, Statistics Show
ST. LOUIS – At an annual New Year’s Eve vigil, police Chief John Hayden revealed that while there were an alarming 194 homicides last year, 108 more people than that died of drug overdoses in the city of St. Louis.
And as if 302 overdose deaths aren’t already mind-blowing, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said it was important to note that the final number for last year hasn’t come in yet.
The final tally won’t be available until, maybe, March or April, because of the length of time it takes to confirm the deaths by toxicology tests.
To track the numbers, the SLMPD works with the Medical Examiner’s Office, City and State Health Departments and the Fire Department. (more …)
