September 29, 2017 – Residents of the Delaware Valley are invited this weekend to participate in an event to raise awareness for drug overdose and treating addiction.
On Sunday, State Representatives Madeleine Dean and Thomas Murt are hosting the Overdose Awareness Walk and Hope Expo in Montgomery County. The event will be held at the Hatboro Baptist Church, beginning at 12:30 p.m.
In May, Malvern Treatment Centers partnered with both Reps. Murt and Dean to hold a community forum on treating drug and alcohol addiction. Malvern operates an inpatient campus in their districts at 240 Fitzwatertown Road in Willow Grove.
“Opioid addiction is crippling communities all across the Commonwealth. We must draw attention to this crisis and show families that there is help available,” the invite reads.
