According to Attorneys Serving the Community 2022-2023 Lead Chair Maeghan Whitehead,
“My wish is for the Dallas community to come see ‘Dopesick and Raising Lazarus’ author Beth Macy on Friday, June 16, at ASC’s 36th Annual Luncheon benefiting Nexus Recovery Center. As the 2022-2023 Lead Chair of Attorneys Serving the Community (ASC), a volunteer organization of approximately 400 women lawyers, judges, and law students from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I am proud to have Nexus as our organization’s beneficiary. Nexus’ mission is to serve as a community of hope and recovery for all women and their families who strive to live healthy, resilient lives, and on behalf of ASC, I invite you to our annual luncheon on their behalf.
“We are very excited to have Beth Macy as our keynote speaker this year. As the author of ‘The New York Times’-bestselling book ‘Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company That Addicted America’ and executive producer of its Emmy-winning Hulu series adaptation, Ms. Macy is one of the nation’s foremost experts on the ongoing opioid crisis. In her latest book, ‘Raising Lazarus: The Search for Hope and Justice, and the Future of America’s Overdose Crisis,’ Macy delves further into the opioid crisis and the heroic efforts of front line workers on the streets of America.
“The proliferation of substance use disorder is tearing communities apart across America and within the Dallas community, and Nexus Recovery Center works 24/7 to keep families together on the road to recovery. Nexus is one of just a few treatment centers in Texas that accepts women in the late stages of pregnancy and allows children to accompany their mothers into treatment, so that families can stay together in recovery. Serving solely women and their children on their journey, Nexus strives to create a safe space for its clients and serves as a link to recovery, independence, and dignity for women and their families.
“I hope that you join us on June 16 at the Thompson Dallas. Come see Beth Macy and learn about how the opioid crisis has affected our community, while supporting a charity that is working to keep women and their families healthy.
