The public is invited to join on Thursday, April 12, from 6-8 p.m. at the Lincoln County Service Center Upper Level Assembly Room (801 N. Sales St. in Merrill) for the premiere of “Straight Forward: The Truth About Addiction.”
“Straight Forward: The Truth About Addiction” features a group of diverse young Wisconsinites from across the state sharing their personal stories of: how they became addicted; what happened with their addiction; what prompted them to get help; what they would say to others; and the hope and confidence they now have for their futures.
The documentary also includes stories from parents with an addicted child, and a child who had an addicted parent.
The Lincoln County Drug Free Coalition invites everyone who is interested in: learning more about preventing opioid and narcotic addiction; hearing how documentary participants found hope; discuss with a panel of local individuals ways we are supporting individuals in recovery; learn about actions you can take by disposing of unused or unwanted prescription medication.
Snacks will be provided. No pre-registration is required.
This event is hosted by the Lincoln County Drug Free Coalition, T.B. Scott Free Library Adult Department Building Merrill Together Program Series and Tomahawk Library.
Funding is provided by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grant.
