Public Forum on Opiates – The Importance of Hope


“Steps to Help The Community Break the Cycle of Addiction”

Taking action on opiates will be the theme of a forum that will take place on Thursday, February 22, 2018 from 6-8pm at the Bellows Falls Opera House. The intent of the forum is to energize the community around taking the steps to help people recovering from opiate addiction through prevention, treatment, recovery, and enforcement. The forum will feature speakers from Turning Point Recovery Center of Springfield, the Bellows Falls Police Department, and families of those experiencing addiction.

Representatives from various community organizations will be present to discuss what is happening now, the services that are currently available, and what steps people can take next. To close the event, there will be a candlelight vigil to honor those we have lost, and those who we hope will find a path to recovery.
