NATICK – SOAR Natick is hosting the Opioid Project on Sunday, September 9 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Morse Institute Library.
Motivated by the devastation caused from the opiate abuse epidemic in Natick, a small group of mothers formed SOAR Natick in June, 2014.
SOAR is a Natick-based support group for those with a loved one suffering from substance use disorder. Their goal is to “help one another deal with the agony of a child ill with Substance Use Disorder, to raise awareness of addiction, reduce stigma, support recovery, and sponsor community outreach initiatives.”
The Opioid Project is an interactive art and storytelling project designed to encourage dialogue, increase awareness, decrease stigma and change societal views about addiction and those affected.
The public is invited to attend the opening of this exhibit and reception, with opening remarks at 3 p.m.
Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring cellphones and headphones in order to fully experience this multi-media project.
