Heroin Highway Coming To FDL

The Beacon House will be bringing the “Heroin Highway” program to Fond du Lac this spring. It started in the Fox Valley and then went to West Bend. Beacon House Executive Director Mary Gerlach says the program will be offered during five separate sessions at Moraine Park Technical College. Each session will cover a different topic. She feels the different sessions will help those dealing with a loved one who has a drug problem. One session will have a panel of people in recovery and another will have representatives of Al-Anon who will talk about how to take care of yourself while you deal with a loved one in trouble. She says they will also bring in Fox Crossing Police Officer Jason Weber to talk about the dangers of prescription medications in your home and will also be bringing back the Rise Together team that was in Fond du Lac for previous opioids summits.
