Screening & discussion of "The Opiate Effect."
A UVM student dies from an overdose of heroin in 2009. His father began a journey to try and educate as many people as possible of the harm not only from the drug itself, but how we as a community are dealing with the problem. The film explores the dangers of opiate and heroin addiction in Vermont and the impact on our children, our families and out community’s safety and well-being. It references many of our local organizations, including The HowardCenter, Senator Leahy, and VT U.S. Attorney Tristram Coffin.
This event is free and open to the public.
