You will hear discussions from individual speakers on vital information about the topics of heroin and opiate use/abuse, and recovery.  The speakers are professionals in the field or people who have experienced the effects of addiction, or experienced it with members of their own families.

This is a wonderful opportunity to obtain answers to many questions you might have about drug abuse in local communities and beyond, and to learn firsthand how addiction problems can happen to anyone, and the aftermath, and what you can do to detect problems and seek help, recovery and prevention.  There is much help available and you can obtain many sources of information at this meeting.

We ask that our attendees be 12 years old and older and be prepared to receive high impact, intense information regarding heroin and opiate abuse.

The door is open to all.  Please spread the word. Check for event updates.

Coffee and snacks will be available.
