Rutland — On December 11, from 6-8 p.m. at Tuttle Hall, the Rutland community will hold a panel discussion in dealing with the prevention, treatment, and recovery of those individuals affected with substance use disorders.
This event is a joint initiative with Rutland’s Project Vision and Rutland Regional Medical Center Community Education.
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 what is taking place in the Rutland Area to address substance misuse, the role of lay professionals and health staff, and what resources are available to individuals and families struggling with addiction.
A question and answer session will immediately follow afterward, with refreshments.
Tuttle Hall is located at 71 Clement Road.
