Tackling the Addiction Epidemic
Our community is rocked by addiction… but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a difference and bring hope! That’s what 104.9 The River’s LoveCbus, Freedom Recovery, and Northwest Bible Church want to accomplish with your help!
If you are looking for answers about what the opioid crisis is doing to our community, looking for ways to help, or looking to engage community leaders on the front lines of the crisis, this event is for you. Come to get educated and get answers, leave to make a difference and bring hope!
The evening will start with a special screening of “Heroin’s Grip”, a powerful documentary about the opioid crisis and how it’s affecting the state of Maryland.
After the screening, there will be a panel discussion with community leaders on the front lines of the crisis here in our backyard. The panel includes:
- Conrad Weaver | Producer/Director, Heroin’s Grip
- Judge Jodi Thomas | Franklin County Municipal Court
- Matt Caudill | Former Director of Operations, Franklin County Coroner’s Office
- Tom Thompson | Founder, The Refuge
Several partners will be hosting booths at the event to share resources and information on how you can help your family, church and community tackle addiction! We look forward to seeing you on September 30!
