Stahler story

GUS Faculty Jerry Stahler participates in Road to Recovery

GUS faculty Jerry Stahler and MA alumna Silvana Mazzella work with Temple physicians, researchers and alumni lead the battle against Philly’s opioid epidemic. Dr. Stahler recently visited “El Campamento,” a heroin encampment located along the Conrail train lines in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. Stahler knows that there is no simple answer to the opioid crisis, calling for acknowledgement that “There’s no silver bullet. You have to really have a multipronged type of approach.”  View the Road to Recovery’s multimedia story about Philadelphia’s work to fight the opioid epidemic.
