Needham Community Forum: Identifying Community Solutions to the Opioid Epidemic on Thursday, June 11th from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Needham Town Hall; this community forum is being hosted in collaboration with the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA), the nation’s leading substance abuse prevention organization.

Our communities are facing a challenging public health problem; during this forum, experts and community stakeholders will outline how prescription drug abuse and the opioid epidemic affects our communities and what can be done to enhance the safety and health of residents.
