Over the past six months, the Monmouth County
Prosecutor’s office has been sounding the alarm on the insidious heroin
epidemic that is addicting and killing our young people regardless of community. As a follow-up to that awareness campaign, area
school districts and drug alliance organizations are sponsoring an adult forum
“Time to Talk…Time to Act” at Red Bank Regional High School District (RBR) on
Thursday, February 20, in the RBR auditorium. RBR is located at 101 Ridge Road
in Little Silver
The program begins at 6:30 pm (sharp!) and ends at 8:30 pm. Information
on heroin addiction will be presented by medical professionals. Additionally,
the personal stories of young people in recovery and the parents of people
whose lives have been impacted by this highly addictive and deadly drug will be
featured. A panel of professionals will
then inform the public on the resources and treatment options available to help
prevent addiction, identify it and promote recovery. A Question and Answer
session will follow the presentations.
This event is jointly sponsored by the School Districts of
Fair Haven, Little Silver, Red Bank, Red Bank Catholic, Red Bank Regional,
Rumson, Rumson-Fair Haven Regional, and Shrewsbury as well as the Rumson-Fair
Haven Community Alliance and the Shrewsbury Community Alliance.
All parents and adults are encouraged to attend.
