Families Against Narcotics of Newaygo County
Over 60 folks attended the last FAN (Families Against Narcotics) meeting, the monthly gathering of citizens concerned enough about the ongoing opioid epidemic to want to arm themselves with the most important element in this burgeoning crisis.
This “National News’ story has a lengthy reach, one that extends well into Newaygo County and touching the lives of far too many members of our community in far too many ways.
This is a problem that has not just zipped past the resources available to help but continues to outdistance those resources as time goes by. For family members who bear the brunt of the burden the frustration involved in attempting to access help can be disheartening.
With the support of our local law enforcement entities, the courts, local treatment providers and those who are well acquainted with recovery these meetings have been providing information to be sure, but beyond becoming more aware those who attend come away with something more.
FAN will be meeting this Wednesday, May 30th 7pm at the NCRESA Multi-media room, 4747 W 48th St. in Fremont. This months meeting will feature a family forum as a panel of local experts responds to questions from the audience.
