Cal U Community Forum: Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness
11 a.m. Sept. 29
Vulcan Theatre, Natali Student Center

More than 23 million American living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.

Learn more about this important issue when campus organizations Options@CalU and H.E.A.R.T. sponsor a showing of the documentary film “The Anonymous People,” followed by a question-and-answer session, at 11 a.m. (common hour) Sept. 29.

Free T-shirts and refreshments will be distributed.

The event is made possible through a grant from Cardinal Health Foundation, whose goal is to raise awareness about misuse and abuse of prescription medications.

“We agreed to show this documentary a few times throughout the semester,” said Rachel Michaels, Cal U’s alcohol and other drug (AOD) education specialist.

“There continues to be a negative stigma about what it means to be an addict, and not enough attention is paid to those in long-term recovery. This documentary raises awareness about people in recovery and attempts to change the stigma of addiction.”

All members of the campus community are encouraged to attend. The event is open to the public.

Admission is free. Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance. Metered parking also is available in Lot 17, behind Gthe Natali Student Center.
