Lead advocate of Benton Franklin Recovery Coalition
A public forum on the Tri-City area’s drug addiction problem and potential solutions is planned by the Benton Franklin Recovery Coalition.
It will be 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday at the HUB auditorium of Bethel Church, 600 Shockley Road, Richland.
Speakers will range from local sheriffs to a doctor. There will be time for the public to ask questions.
The recovery coalition is a new Tri-Cities-area nonprofit working to expand opportunities for recovery from addiction, to remove barriers to recovery, and to promote understanding and remove the stigma of the disease of substance use disorder.
