A community conversation around Substance Abuse will be held on Wednesday May 8th from 6:30pm-9:00pm in the Josephine Tope Community Auditorium. This event will be hosted by Nevada Mayor Brett Barker, and includes Natasha Terrones (advocate), Geoff Huff (Ames Police Commander), and Dr. Alan Bollinger (Addiction Medicine) in collaboration with the Nevada Police Department.
The Hidden in Plain Sight exhibit will be available from 6:30pm until 7:00pm and again after the panel discussion. Hidden in Plain Sight is a mock bedroom full of items that hide illegal substances, paraphernalia, tobacco, alcohol, and vaping devices.
YSS will provide Naloxone/Narcan free of charge to interested audience members who are able to attend the brief training included in the panel discussion.
Event is sponsored by the Nevada Substance Abuse Task Force.
