The first Drug Free Communities Coalition meeting of the new school year will take place at the Avon Public Library from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. Sept. 10. Matt Ganem from Wicked Sober will talk about his organization’s work to help people struggling with drugs and alcohol, primarily by offering free assistance in finding treatment programs. Ganem, a former heroin addict and a poet, is Wicked Sober’s outreach coordinator. “I was once considered a lost cause; now I refuse to be a lost voice,” he said. “I want to do my part in helping people get into recovery, along with destroying the stigma attached to addiction.”
