Middlesex County Substance Abuse Action Council
Shoreline Opiate Forum
You are cordially invited to join us for a free community forum, “Painkiller Use to Opiate Abuse to Heroin Epidemic.” The event will be held at the Westbrook Public Library on Monday, March 14 at 5:00 p.m. A panel of four experts will lead the discussion. Panelists include DMHAS Commissioner Delphin-Rittmon, State’s Attorney Peter McShane, State Trooper Wayne Buck, Dr. J. Craig Allen, MD, and from Aware Recovery Care, a young woman in recovery from opiate addiction. As a community, how can we reduce the supply of, and demand for, opioid drugs? How do we prevent people from abusing these drugs and falling prey to addiction? These questions and more will be considered. Audience participation is welcomed and encouraged!
