Understanding Addiction

addiction-help

Penn-State-HealthIn conjunction with the newly formed Addiction Center at the Penn State College of Medicine and the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is hosting a series of three presentations that will educate community members and help them better understand addiction (disease progression risks, protective factors, impacts, treatments, etc.). Pennsylvania now ranks third in the nation for overdose deaths and unfortunately Hershey and its surrounding areas are not immune.

Listed below are the dates of these presentations that will be held at the library. Registration is preferred but not necessary. Feel free to attend one or all of the sessions. Registration can be done online at the Event Calendar, or by calling the Circulation Desk at 533-6555.
