Pill bottle wall honors lives lost to opioid overdoses

DURANGO, Colo. (KRQE) - A wall that displays 42,000 pill bottles will be on display in Durango soon, honoring those who have died from an opioid overdose.

The 34-foot-long traveling wall will make a stop in southern Colorado Monday at the Durango Public Library.

The Durango Herald reports that the opioid memorial wall is part of a Colorado campaign called "Lift the Label."

One bottle represents every 10 Americans who died by overdose from heroin and prescription opioid drugs in 2016. 

Speakers who have experienced opioid addiction will speak during the event.
