Rutland, Vermont: For the past six years, the Rutland Community has made significant strides in dealing with the prevention, treatment, and recovery of those individuals affected with substance use disorders. On December 11, 2019 from 6-8pm at Tuttle Hall, 71 Clement Road, Rutland, we invite you to join us for an update and panel discussion of current initiatives, services, and resources available to individuals and family members dealing with addiction. The panel presentation will include Clay Gilbert, Director of Substance Abuse at Evergreen Services, Commander Matt Prouty, Rutland City Police and Executive Director Project Vision, Tracie Haulk, Executive Director, Turning Point Center, an individual recovering from addiction, and a family member who will address the positive impact of treatment interventions.
The event is focusing on community members who would like to gain more insight into this topic, what is taking place here in the Rutland Area to address substance misuse, how lay professionals and health staff are working with this issue, and what resources are available to individuals and families struggling with addiction. A question and answer session will immediately follow afterwards.
This event is a joint initiative with Rutland’s Project Vision and Rutland Regional Medical Center Community Education. Refreshments will be available. For more information and to register visit www.rrmc.org or call 802-772-2400.
