PALMERTON – To help inform parents, children and families about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) is holding a Drug and Alcohol Awareness Expo on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 6-8 p.m. at Palmerton High School, located at 3525 Fireline Rd, Palmerton.

The expo will feature dozens of resources with information about preventing drug and alcohol use and promoting healthy habits. Information about Narcan, the heroin overdose antidote, will be available, as well as tips for parents, including a mock teen bedroom. A private room will be set up for discreet discussions with a physician.

“I offer this expo to provide families and area residents with a variety of tools and resources to curb addiction in our communities. All are welcome to attend and I look forward to this event each year as we work to fight the drug abuse epidemic,” said Heffley.

This event is open to all ages, and children are invited to wear Halloween costumes to trick-or-treat with vendors at the expo. A prescription drug-drop box will be on site for the safe disposal of unwanted or expired prescription drugs.

For more information about the Drug and Alcohol Awareness Expo, contact Heffley’s office at (610) 377-6363 or visit RepHeffley.com.
