October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month.  The Lincoln County Drug Free Coalition (DFC) along with the Northwoods Coalition would like to invite the public to attend our County Educational Forum about the misuse of opioids and use of methamphetamine in our county.   The Forum will be held on Thursday, October 26, 2017 beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Lincoln County Service Center Upper Level Assembly Room (801 North Sales Street in Merrill).  Beginning at 5 p.m. you are invited to join us for appetizers and to learn about the work of local agencies/organizations to address the substance use/abuse needs in Lincoln County.

Representative Mary Felzkowski will be in attendance at the Forum to provide an overview of opioid and methamphetamine use/abuse in Wisconsin and statewide efforts to  address.  You will then hear what is occurring locally from representative(s) of local schools, medical/hospital, law enforcement and the judicial system.  There will be time at the end of the Forum for questions and discussion.
