PA Democrats hold open houses on addiction to honor Recovery Month


Last updated 9/12/2018 at 8:02pm

September is recognized nationally as Recovery Month to honor the work being done to combat addiction and celebrate those who are in recovery from substance abuse disorder. To commemorate the month, Pennsylvania Senate Democrats will host several open houses on addiction across the state.

At each of these events, attendees will have the ability to talk to recovery specialists, family counselors, experts from legal clinics, witness a Narcan demonstration, take home a safe prescription disposal bag, and much more.

Some of the partners include: PA Department of Human Services; PA Department of Insurance; PA Department of Drug & Alcohol Prevention; Pathways to Pardons; PA Department of Corrections; PA Attorney General; Neighborhood Legal Services; Community Legal Services; Solevo Wellness; PA 211; Al Anon; Alliance of Community Service providers; and, and dozens more.

These events are open to anyone and the caucus is hopeful that those fighting addiction and their families find the resources useful in the battle against addiction. Open houses in the Pittsburgh area include:

September 12, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Teamsters Temple, 4701 Butler Street, Pittsburgh 15201, hosted by Senator Wayne D. Fontana
