Sen. Lindsey Williams to host addiction resources open house in Brackenridge
Narcan demonstrations, safe prescription disposal bags, recovery specialists and family counselors are among the resources that will be available from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday when state Sen. Lindsey M. Williams, D-West View, hosts a free Addiction Resource Open House at Pioneer Hose Company in Brackenridge.
A spokeswoman for Williams said the event, the first of its kind in the area, is among a series of addiction resource open houses the Democratic Senate Caucus is sponsoring in conjunction with interested caucus members.
The events are free and open to the public and designed to provide resources to those grappling with addiction as well as their friends, family members and community.
More than a dozen state, county and local agencies as well as representatives of drug treatment centers are scheduled to be on hand for the open house at Pioneer Hose at 124 Morgan St.
The Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office also will be on site to perform a Drug Take Back for the safe disposal of unused or expired prescription drugs, Williams’ spokeswoman Becky Boyle said.
Sen. Pam Iovino, D-Mt. Lebanon, is hosting the only other open house scheduled in Western Pennsylvania from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., in the Chartiers Room at 370 Commercial Street, Bridgeville.
