Community Forum on Substance Abuse Oct 27

Prescription drug and heroin abuse is a national epidemic, and the Scotia community is not immune from it.  In an effort to combat this serious problem, the Scotia-Glenville Substance Abuse Task Force was formed, comprised of school officials, law enforcement leaders, substance abuse and medical professionals, and community members.

The Task Force will hold a community forum on Thursday, October 27 at 7 p.m. in the Scotia-Glenville High School auditorium to provide information about the current crisis and share suggestions for addressing the problem.  Community input and support is essential for success.
