 A Congressional Town Hall Hosted By Maine’s 2nd District Congressman Bruce Poliquin 

Founding member of the Congressional Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic 

6 – 8 p.m., Tuesday, August 16 Kirk Hall, Central Maine Community College, 1250 Turner St., Auburn 

Those on the front lines of Maine’s deadly opioid epidemic say the most common call they receive is from parents who don’t know where to turn as they watch a loved one struggle with a substance use disorder. And, a recent state taskforce concluded that if families were better educated and engaged in evidence-based prevention, treatment and recovery, youth would be guided away from substance use towards paths of success and wellness. 

Hosted by Our Congressman Bruce Poliquin, this Congressional Town Hall will provide a safe, supportive space for families to come together and learn proven prevention strategies and local treatment and recovery resources so they can more constructively support their loved ones and communities. In addition to inspiring stories from area families supporting a loved one who is addicted or in recovery, attendees will have time to talk directly with Central Maine’s leading prevention, treatment, law enforcement and health care leaders, and each other.
