The United States is in the middle of a crisis. A crisis that’s impacting our families and communities, and Indiana is at the epicenter: opioid use disorder.
And the Indiana State Museum plans to talk about it.
In this powerful exhibit — FIX: Heartbreak and Hope Inside Our Opioid Crisis — the Indiana State Museum is committed to finding ways for Indiana communities to come together to shift the conversation and break the stigma surrounding opioid use disorder. Together, we can remove the shame and isolation surrounding this disease, and show how all of us can play a pivotal role in managing this devastating crisis.
The exhibit invites you to unravel the crisis one step at a time, including the science and biology behind opioid use disorder, our nation’s history with other health crises, personal stories from impacted people and communities, and the various roads to recovery. Using a mix of science, multimedia, hands-on activities and interactive artwork, the exhibit sheds light on the nature of addiction, how we got here and what we can all do to help change the course we’re on, moving our state from crisis to resolution.
