True Addiction Stories

Catawba Valley Community College’s Interdisciplinary Read Committee will host its final community discussion on “Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Addiction,” April 3 at noon when recovering addicts share their stories.


“True Stories of Addiction” featuring survivors of addiction will be held in the East Wing Auditorium at noon. They will share their struggles, their heartbreak and hope. This event concludes the college’s year-long programming centered around the themes found in Quinones' “Dreamland.”

These stories are true and important. However, language will be explicit and graphic.

During the college’s year-long examination of “Dreamland,” students from various core disciplines are challenged to consider themselves as part of a larger community and society.  

Organizations supporting the series of discussions include the Catawba County Library System and Cognitive Connections. Financial supporters include Catawba Valley Community Foundation, United Arts Council of Catawba County, and the Beaver Family Foundation.

Individuals with a disability needing accommodations should contact CVCC’s Counselor for Students with Disabilities at least 72 hours in advance to allow time to arrange the services at 828-327-7000, ext. 4222, or
