8 years ago

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine Rep. Robert Saucier will host the showing of an educational film on drug addiction and a community discussion at University of Maine at Presque Isle on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The film, “The Hungry Heart,” examines prescription drug abuse and recovery, and provides an intimate look at the hidden world of drug addiction and the successes and challenges of recovery.
The screening will take place in the Allagash Room of the Campus Center.

“The opioid crisis in Maine is only getting worse,” said Saucier, D-Presque Isle. “I hope this film will provide an insight into the struggles of addiction and recovery. We need to come together as a community to determine how we can end this horrible epidemic.”
