Parents and members of the community are invited to attend a parent forum titled “Drugs in Our Town: The Ugly Truth” on Monday, March 2, at 7 p.m. at Shoreham-Wading River High School. The forum is being presented in conjunction with the Suffolk County Police Department’s Operation Medicine Cabinet program.

Attendees will hear from the Suffolk County Police Department Response Bureau about heroin/opioid awareness, learn about Operation Medicine Cabinet, and receive information from a forensic investigator from the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s Office.  

The program will also feature a question-and-answer period, as well as a Narcan training session where attendees will learn about Narcan, a prescription medication that can reverse an overdose by blocking the effects of opioids.
