FRAMINGHAM – SMOC in partnership with Framingham FORCE is hosting a screening of the NOVA: Addiction Movie with a panel discussion on Wednesday, June 19 at the main Framingham Library.
Movie screen will start at 6;30 p.m. in the Costin room of the main Framingham Library, at 49 Lexington Street, followed by a panel discussion.
Hear firsthand from individuals struggling with addiction and follow the cutting-edge work of doctors and scientists as they investigate why addiction is not a moral failing, but a chronic, treatable medical condition.
Easy access to drugs like heroin, fentanyl, and even prescription medications like OxyContin has fueled an epidemic of addiction—the deadliest in U.S. history.
Now, science is revealing how addiction affects the brain, and top experts are gathering evidence about how we should address our drug problem, from embracing evidence-based treatments, to rethinking public policies.
Get an opportunity to talk with community providers in a panel discussion and find out the incredible work that Framingham is doing around Addiction.
The event is free and open to the public.
