Community Forum and Expo on Substance Abuse
is Well Attended
On Thursday, January 21, West Genesee
High School hosted a Community Forum on
Substance Abuse and Expo.
Presenters told stories of tragedy,
loss, pain, hope, and treatment so
eloquently that each main presenter
received a well deserved standing
ovation. Each story began with how a
supportive family and money still led to
alcohol, pill, and heroin abuse, and how
quickly it can happen.
