The event will include

  • Resource fair with local vendors in the treatment and recovery community.

Guests can get resources and talk to many treatment, recovery, and support agencies.

“In addition to remembering those we have lost, we also want families to know there are many resources available if they have a loved one living with substance use disorder,” said Wolken.
