OPIOD EDUCATIONAL MEETING FOR PARENTS “POWERFUL AND INFORMATIVE”

A very powerful and informative meeting and discussion about the opioid addiction put on by the Maynard School Department, Police Department, and Mark Wahlberg Foundation last night.   All attendees were touched by the movie “if only” and the personal stories of some of the panelists, with a moving introduction by James Wahlberg.

Panelists discussing addiction: (l to r)  Maynard High School Principal Charles Caragianes, Dr. Brian W. O’Connor, Chief of Police Mark Dubois, Brian Teague-Manages Michael’s Sober Living House in Wilmington, & Melissa Weiksnar-a Carlisle resident whose daughter died from an overdose.

James Wahlberg addresses the crowd about his own battles with addiction prior to the screening of the “If Only” movie.
