Parents and teens are particularly encouraged to participate in this town hall-style event to learn what’s driving the heroin epidemic and what you can do about it. Discussion will focus on the production, distribution and demographics of heroin use and abuse in DuPage County, the physiology, short- and long-term effects of heroin addiction, Narcan treatment protocols and how they have saved lives, what lies beneath this growing problem, a substance abuse epidemic, practical things that YOU can do, and practical ideas, strategies, and efforts to curb this epidemic by attacking the issue at its core.
Walk-ins are welcome but interested participants are asked to please contact the Linden Oaks Outpatient Education Center at (630) 527-6363 or visit www.edward.org/classes. Seating is limited, RSVPs are appreciated.
