This six week program is designed to provide valuable information about the Opioid Epidemic that is causing concerns for most communities, taking lives, and taxing our services and resources.  The program will provide testimonials from those who have faced addictions issues and have been able to move into recovery and a productive healthy life, with suggestions around how to emerge from active addictions.  This educational forum will provide opportunities to learn more about the issue of drug abuse as it relates to mental health issues.


This session will provide background information, testimonial and a discussion around the stigma of people in active addiction and those in recovery.
