Save A Life Community Drug Forum to be held Nov. 8

on November 6, 2017

The Monroe Police Department will host its second “Save a Life” Community Drug Forum on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 6 p.m. at the Sacred Heart School on Still Road.

The forum will feature several compelling speakers.

“You will hear real stories from a grieving mother who says that after her son died from a heroin overdose she started putting clues together,” Monroe Police Chief David B. Conklin said, “and realized the signs were there, but she didn’t recognize them at the time.”

There also will be success stories told by two different people who were addicted to alcohol and drugs. 

Monroe Village Police have collaborated with the Orange County Alcoholism and Drug Council, the Monroe-Woodbury Clergy Association, the Monroe-Woodbury Central School District and the New York State National Guard Counter Drug Task Force to put on this forum.

There will also be informational booths, a discreet question and answer portion and a Hidden Mischief Room on display. Everyone is welcome!

Hear stories from those who have struggled with addiction in a Public Service Announcement created by the Orange County Alcoholism and Drug Council in conjunction with students from Minisink Valley.
