Public Forum on Addiction Recovery--December 12th

Public Invited to FOR-NY Recovery Talks: Community Listening forum on Addiction & Recovery

ERIE COUNTY, NY— On Monday evening, December 12, 2016, from 6:00—8:00pm, a forum will be held at the Hyatt Place Buffalo/Amherst Hotel at 5020 Main Street in Amherst (14226), just adjacent to the I-290 Youngmann Expressway.

This forum is part of a series of local forums being held across New York State to provide community members the opportunity to share personal experiences highlighting recovery from addiction, dealing with alcohol and drug addiction, and the loss of a family member or friend. The FOR-NY Recovery Talks: Community Listening Forums aim to connect with and engage the community in discussion with decision makers. Public comment will be included in a published report which will be disseminated locally and to state officials to better educate the public and policy makers on addiction and recovery in New York State.

This event is cosponsored by Save the Michaels of the World and the Erie County Council for the Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse. Register here.
