It's being recognized as a growing epidemic in our area. The issue, is heroin.
Tonight, members of the community gathered at Fairfield Hose Company in Harborcreek to discuss the impact that heroin is having on our community.
Several speakers shared personal stories on how heroin has affected their lives. Organizations that offer services to those struggling with addiction were also on hand, providing information on where people can go for help.
"I think that having an event where you can learn about the impact that heroin has in peoples lives, but also that there are success stories and that there are agencies that can help with heroin addiction." said event organizer Tracie Perrine.
