How to Get Help for a Heroin Addict
"Say Something About Heroin: Intervention, Treatment & Recovery" is a free, informational event tonight, Wed., June 4, 2013, and you're invited.
This FREE community forum for friends and family members who have a heroin addict in their midst, or who have middle schoolers that they want to keep OFF of drugs, will feature speakers and representatives from a variety of inpatient and outpatient programs.
It takes place Wednesday, June 4, 2014, from 7 pm - 9 pm, at the Wall Municipal Building (downstairs), 2700 Allaire Road in Wall.
The program will feature Psychiatrist Dr. Russ Ferstandig, M.D., whose message "There is a way out" will inspire those that are faced with addiction and hopelessness.
The program will also include speakers that will inform you on how to access treatment, how to do an intervention, and staying sober.
This program is provided for anyone who is searching for help and/or support with recovery, intervention, and prevention. Over 30 providers will be available to personally discuss options for individuals, family members, friends and those who are struggling and want to learn more about the services that are available and how to access them.
A well-known counselor from our area who has been working in this field for years, Denise Wegeman, will also be on hand for parents of middle schoolers to provide information on preventing your child from ever trying drugs.
