Continue reading below

Residents are invited to take part in a community discussion about drug abuse in the city on Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. at the Senior Center, 10 Riley Way. The event, organized by a community substance abuse coalition led by City Manager Jay Ash, will be preceded by a light meal at 5:30 p.m. Participants will hear about how substance abuse affects the community. There will also be discussion about programs that the city and local organizations are developing to combat the problem, and the resources available in the area for people struggling with addiction. Spanish interpretation will be available. “This is another important step in our journey to address the public health side of drug addiction in our community,” Ash said in a prepared statement. For more information, contact Dan Cortez, the city’s community substance abuse manager, at 617- 887-3554 or dcortez@partners.org.
