The Minisink (NY) Kiwanis Club held a forum on Friday night called, Is Heroin Killing Our Kids?

The Kingfisher Project’s Julie Pisall was among the speakers. She gave a heart-wrenching account of her family’s story. Another young woman told of her brother’s death to a heroin overdose. A mother who is a bus driver in the district told how her son had been doing so well in recovery, then in just one lapse, died of a heroin overdose. People in recovery and who work in treatment also spoke.

Many people there wanted to learn more about the signs that someone might be using.

Above is the photo we took of the Wayne County Heroin Prevention Task Force display board or signs.

Here is a link to an audio recording of Suzie Frisch of the task force explaining the signs.
