Franklin Drug Task Force to host open discussion

FRANKLIN — On Thursday, November 13th the Franklin Mayor's Drug Task Force will host an open discussion on issues surrounding alcohol and other drug use in the Franklin and Hill communities. This discussion will take place from 5:30–7 p.m. at The Franklin Opera House.

The discussion will focus on narrowing down the community's priorities regarding alcohol and other drug use concerns. Area residents are invited to attend, enjoy food and refreshments provided by coalition members, and share their thoughts.

Task Force Coordinator, Angela Lynch, explains this listening session is step one of a multi-step process. This process will guide Task Force planning to help reduce substance abuse in the community.

"We want people to know that their voice matters," says Lynch. "We want to hear what their priorities are in tackling substance abuse."

The Task Force encourages the community to take a look at some important information and data online to help prepare for the discussion. To view this data, visit www.franklinnh.org. On the Task Force homepage under the header "Local Data" the links to recent local data reports can be found.

"This first step is part of a much larger conversation and won't be focused on solutions at this stage," said Lynch. "There will be no blaming involved in our discussions." The Task Force will be using data to address two important points. The first is to carefully consider which substances are directly impacting our community right now, and second o identify what substances stand the greatest chance of reducing.

In addition to food and refreshments, childcare is being offered. Community members in need of childcare, are encouraged to reserve a spot when they RSVP. All interested attendees must RSVP to the Franklin Mayor's Drug Task Force by calling 998-5337.
