In celebration of National Recovery Month, Kennebec Behavioral Health and the ROAR (Recovery & Opioid Addiction Resources) team is hosting a Recovery & Opioid Addiction Rally & Community Forum in Skowhegan on Thursday, September 19th.  The event will begin at 5:30 PM at Coburn Park with a recovery vigil/walk to the Margaret Chase Smith School at 40 Heselton St. in Skowhegan.  Following the walk will be a community forum and panel discussion – Treatment Works and Recovery Can Happen.  The panel will feature Gordon Smith, Director of Maine’s Opioid Response program.  After the forum, there will be a showing of the movie Heroin(e).  This Oscar-nominated film follows three women — a fire chief, a judge and a street missionary — battling West Virginia’s devastating opioid epidemic.
