The Manchester Police Department has taken a proactive approach to educating the public on the dangers of substance abuse ~ most specifically the very real dangers of opiate addiction and the need for awareness and education. This addiction is being labeled as epidemic and carries with it grave consequences.
Addiction is not a comfortable topic and if you have ever known anyone dealing with these issues then you know how it affects not only the individual but also family, friends and the community as a whole.
Please be informed and attend programs such as the one being offered at RHS this evening at 7pm in the auditorium. The video below was created by the Manchester PD and delivers a message from a parent who is sharing her story in the hopes that other such tragedies can be prevented.
