We are conducting a voluntary five (5) question survey to learn a little about our coalition members ahead of the first meeting which will be held on June 30th at 7 pm in the Franklin High School Auditorium. The information you provide will help us maximize the potential of this coalition and enable us to use your experience and expertise appropriately and create the best materials to help us reach our goals.

to complete the short survey. Thank you in advance for your interest and assistance with this project.
In the meantime, you may want to review Governor Baker's Stop Addiction
website which provides information on how to prevent and identify opioid misuse and where to go for help. You can view that site by clicking here
And below, I have included some links to two timely videos on the subject. One is a short film called If Only
which was produced by James Wahlberg and filmed in Tewksbury. It tells the story of two teenagers battling addiction to prescription opiates. One of the boys gets help to beat the addiction, while the other dies of an overdose. The other film is an 87-minute documentary titled The Other Side of Andover Massachusetts
. It's the work of a recent Andover High School graduate who is trying to draw attention to opiate abuse in his community.
I thought the films would be of interest in preparation for our first community conversation next Monday. I look forward to seeing you then.
