St. Jude Parish in Chalfont will host an Opioid Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. in the church, located at 321 West Butler Avenue, Chalfont.
The two-hour event aims to provide support, education and hope to anyone affected by addiction. A panel of experts will focus on the scope of the crisis, the signs and symptoms of opioid addiction, its neurological, legal and sociological impacts and what individuals can do to address it. Material on local resources that can provide assistance will also be provided.
Speakers include David Fialko, a certified prevention specialist at the Council of Southeast Pa.; Diane Rosati, executive director of the Bucks County Drug and Alcohol Commission; Amy McCrary, a certified recovery specialist; and Bucks County District Attorney Matthew D. Weintraub. The moderator is Robert Whitley.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
